In the phase change diagram for H20, the second horizontal line is meant to symbolize liquid water changing into water vapor. It is horizontal because the temperature is not increasing as heat is going into breaking the hydrogen bonds. The enthalpy for this change is symbolized as kJ/mol and does not change throughout the process until the liquid is completely converted to gas. Then the temperature will rise and the enthalpy changes based on the temperature increase.
