Ice can be colder than zero degrees centigrade; there is no law that keeps ice at zero degrees. If there were such a law, then ice would be a perfectly clean, infinite source of energy. We could simply pump heat out of ice, and the heat would never diminish. But this is not the case. So it is possible to add water ices of different temperatures and in the long run the temperatures would balance out.

A black hole is formed and no temperature exists

What is added to dry ice to make it change?

Essentially, dry ice will simply change from a solid straight to a gas through sublimation at room temperature. Nothing is needed to change the state of matter of dry ice except a higher temperature.

Why does waters temperature not change when it turns from solid ice to liquid water?

When ice warms up to the freezing point, all further energy added to the ice will go to the process of actually melting it, or changing the phase, in what is called the latent heat of melting. Once all the ice melts, the water will be the same temperature, but will then be able to heat up as more energy is added.

What happens to temperature when energy is added as heat?

Either the temperature will increase, or it will remain the same. In the latter case, there is a phase change, as when ice melts.

What happens if energy is added or taken away from a glass of ice water?

That depends on how much energy, but simply:added, more ice melts to water - if enough is added all the ice will melt and the temperature risestaken away, more water freezes to ice - if enough is taken away all the water wii freeze and the temperature will dropAs long as there is both ice and water the temperature will hold constant.

What happens when energy is added to a sample of ice at 0 Celsius?

The energy is used to break down hydrogen bonds between the water molecules making up the ice, during which there is no temperature change. Then the energy is used to change the ice into the liquid phase. Once the phase change is complete, the temperature will increase.

What is the temperature of ice when salt is added to it?

38 degrees

What happens to the water temperature and water state as dry ice is added?

The temperature decrease and water can be transformed in ice.

When heat is added to ice does the heat cause a change of state or an increase in temperature?

It depends what temperature the ice is at. If the ice is below 0 °Celsius, adding heat will increase the temperature until it reaches 0 °Celsius and then it will change the state to water, and then the temperature will start to increase again once all the ice is converted to water.See the Web Links for a plot of heat input versus temperature as water changes from ice to water to steam.

When thermal energy is added to solid ice its temperature does what?


How does a substance change when its thermal energy changes?

For example, when heat energy (thermal energy) is added to a substance, either its temperature will increase, or it will change its state (as when ice is melted).
