Heating/Cooling Curve and Phase Diagrams

Heating/Cooling Curve and Phase Diagrams
A heating curve shows how the temperature of a substance changes as heat is added at a constant rate.

Heating/Cooling Curve and Phase Diagrams
The heating curve at right shows the temperature change in a sample of iron as heat is added at a constant rate. The sample starts out as a solid and ends as a gas. Describe the phase change that occurred between points B and C on the graph. Solution: Between points B and C, the sample changed from solid to liquid.

Heating/Cooling Curve and Phase Diagrams
1. In the heating curve for iron, describe the phase change that occurred between points D and E on the graph.

States of matter are Solid Liquid gas Phase diagrams pressure-temperature diagrams

Heating Cooling Curve and Phase Diagrams
Triple points mark conditions at which three different phases can coexist. For example, the water phase diagram has a triple point corresponding to the single temperature and pressure at which solid, liquid, and gaseous water can coexist in a stable equilibrium
