Heating Curve

Postby Glendy Gonzalez 1A » Sat Jan 20, 2018 7:55 pm

In test #1, would there be questions regarding heating curves? That is, problems in which we would need to calculate the energy needed for one substance to go from one state to another.

If I'm understanding your question correctly, asking if calculations involving transitions between states like solid to liquid, then yes. The enthalpies of fusion and vaporization are given on the constants sheet for the class. I would assume that means they are fair game for the test. Some of the homework involves calculations between states and different temperatures too. So if I would know it just to be safe.

Dr. Lavelle additionally may ask the "why does steam cause severe burns?" question in relation to the heating curve of water.
