Science - Melting Ice

posted by .

In the process of heating ice into the boiling state of its liquid form, did the procass absorb or release energy? Did the molecules spontaneously move fast? Where did the energy come from and where did it go? did it increase or decrease? was it lost? Were the molecules getting closer or farther apart.

how was the energy supplied by the burner stored by the system (Ek or Ei. Is this energy (Ei) between atoms in a bond or between multiple molecules and their attractions for each other?

lastly, how would increasing the rate of heating by using two bunsen burners affect the rate at which the ice melted?


I assume this was done as a demonstration or perhaps you or a group of students did it in a lab. At any rate, these all seem to be thought questions and you won't have that exercise if I do all the work for you. If you think and write, I shall be happy to critique your work. As a hint, do you think the ice melts by adding heat to it or by taking heat away from it?

i think by adding heat because i adds friction to the heat.

I want to know how does ice melt?
