3a) A tank of liquefied propane is punctured, emitting gaseous propane vapors. Is heat being transferred?
-Is this process releasing heat because the substance is undergoing a phase change? (liquid-->gas)

Yes, that is what I put as my explanation. I also said that it was an endothermic process.

Yes, because going from liquid to gas, heat must be transferred, and looking at a heating curve I think heat is supplied because heat must be supplied for a liquid to turn into a gas.

if you were going from gas to liquid, then it would be exothermic because phase changes of vaporization and condensation are the opposite

^@Nicole No, phase changes such as vaporization and melting are endothermic ( you need to add heat to an ice cube in order for it to change phase to liquid) while freezing and condensation are exothermic (I remember it as think of a glass of water. If you somehow took out all the heat in the water it would become ice)
