Water Phase Change

This experiment is designed to measure the temperature of water as it goes through a phase change from ice to liquid. The computer/multimedia system and a Pasco sensor are used to measure the temperature and plot a graph. I need at least 24 hours notice to perform this experiment because I need to freeze the ice sample. The experiment takes +/-15 minutes to perform but you can start it, continue teaching and then come back to it to see the results.
