Give scientific reasons for the following:

(a) It is much easier to skate on rough ice than on glass.

(b) Sand mixed with salt is often spread over the icy roads in winter.

(c) A steam burn is usually worse than a hot water burn.

(d) Bottled drinks are cooled more effectively when surrounded by lumps of ice than by cold water at 0^{o}C.

(a) Ice melts under pressure. So, when the steel blades of the skates pressed on the ice, the ice melts. The water formed makes the skates slide easily over the ice, reducing friction. So, when we are skating on ice, we are skating on a thin film of water, which acts like lubricating oil. Nothing such happens in case of glass.

(b) Sand improves the friction between car tyres and the road, so cars don't skid on icy surfaces. Salt is spread so as to decrease the melting point of ice. Ice on the roads melt, making the roads less slippery.

(c) Steam burn is worse than a hot water burn because 1 g of steam gives out 540 calories of additional heat.

(d) Lumps of ice cool better than cold water because each gram of ice requires additional 80 calories of heat to get converted into water. Hence, cooling capacity of lumps of ice is more than cold water.

40 g of ice at -16^{o}C is dropped into water at 0^{o}C, when 4 g of water freezes into ice. If specific heat capacity of ice is 2100 J/kg^{o}C, what will be the latent heat of fusion of ice?

State, with reason, which of the two, boiling water or steam both at 100^{o}C will produce more severe burns.

Steam at 100^{o}C will produce more severe burns because every gram of steam gives out 2260 J of heat energy while condensing. This much amount of heat is additional to the heat contained in one gram of boiling water.

Ice cream appears colder to the mouth than water at 0^{o}C. Give a reason.

Ice cream appears colder to mouth than water at 0^{o}C because it can extract approximately 80 cal/g (latent heat of fusion of ice)more heat from as compared to water at 0 ^{o}C.

1 gram of ice at 0^{o}C requires 80 calories of heat to get converted into 1 gram of water at 0^{o}C. So, water has more heat.

Which contains more heat: 1 G water at 100^{o}C or 1 g steam at 100^{o}C? Give reason.

1 gram of water at 100^{o}C requires 540 calories of heat to get converted into 1 gram of steam at 100^{o}C. So, steam has more heat.

Which requires more heat: 1 g ice at 0^{o}C or 1 g water at 0^{o}C to raise its temperature to 10^{o}C? Explain your answer.

1 gram of ice at 0^{o}C requires additional 80 calories of heat to get converted into water at 0^{o}C. Then, heat is provided to raise the temperature to 10^{o}C. Therefore, ice requires more heat than water and the additional heat is known as 'Latent heat of fusion of ice'.
