Is the Coast Really Toast?: A Lesson About Volcanoes, Phase Changes, and the Art of Estimation

Clever! Use a clip from the 1997 film, Volcano, to get your chemistry class knee-deep in heat concepts related to lava. In the movie scene, lava flow is stopped in the nick of time. Your class must use calculations to determine if this could actually happen. Use this activity as an assessment after introducing learners to the concepts of specific heat and latent heat.
