Hello, I hope you guys don't mind what's hopefully a quick and easy question, but which I can't find the answer to through Google.
I was wondering what the specific heat capacity of a frozen NaCl solution is. 0.25 Molar, 0.5 Molar, 0.75 Molar, and 1 Molar in particular. (By solution, it's simply water with NaCl dissolved inside.)
Also, the latent heat of fusion for the same solutions would be incredibly useful.
I tried to discover this via a lab, however the freezer unfortunately did not maintain a constant temperature and hence I found that the specific heat capacity of 1 Molar NaCl solution was higher than that of pure water, which is obviously incorrect. It'd be really nice to know what exactly I'm looking for when I redo the experiment.
Thanks, and happy New Years!
take a look at Archer and Carter (2000) J. Phys. Chem. B 104, 8563 and subsequent citations to it.
