Visual Representation of Molecules in a Heating Curve - it looks better when it moves
http://www.dlt.ncssm.edu/tiger/Flash/phase/HeatingCurve.html

EXAMPLE QUESTIONS:

1.What is the final temperature we can reach if we apply 5,072J to 250g of water at 15.0
degree celsius? Answer: 20.4 degree celsius

2. When does the potential energy of a substance change?
Answer: During a phase change because temperature remains constant, so kinetic energy remains constant, causing an change in potential energy.

3.In which process does a solid change directly into vapor ?
Answer : Sublimation

4.What happens to Kinetic Energy when temperature decreases? Answer: Kinetic Energy also decreases because the molecules start to slow down and move when temperature decreases.
5) Why does the potential energy of a substance increase during the melting process?
Ans-During the melting process,heat is absorbed by the substance in the form of potential energy even though kinetic energy and the temperature is constant.Both the solid and liquid phase of the substance are present during the melting process.However,as time passes,the amount of liquid increases as the amount of solid decreases.As the liquid phase of a substance has more potential energy than the solid phase,the potential energy of the substance increases during the melting process.
