Will somebody explain why the vaporization section in the heat curve of water is much longer than the fusion part? In other words, why does it take longer for a liquid to become a gas as than a solid to become a liquid?
It takes far more energy to excite liquid water molecules and break the bonds between them to cause vaporization than to break the crystalline-structured bonds between water molecules found in ice so the heating curve is much longer for vaporization.
