1. Outline how you would use a calorimeter to determine the enthalpy of fusion of ice.

2. Suppose the enthalpy of fusion of ice determined from your experiment is lower than the accepted value. List three possible causes of the difference in value. Explain how each cause affects the calculated value of Hf.
