Heat of Fusion

Students use a temperature sensor to describe the flow of energy through a system during a phase change.

Supports NGSS Performance Expectation HS-PS3-1: Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known.

Temperature Sensor

Wireless Temperature Sensor

The Wireless Temperature Sensor is a general-purpose sensor found in many science labs. With a rugged, waterproof design, and long-lasting battery, students can spend more time collecting data and less time dealing with equipment.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
