In the ice to steam energy graph how does energy not effect temperature during a phase change? I understand energy is needed to break the bonds in order to complete the phase change but how does that same energy needed not increasing the kinetic energy of the molecules?
Temperature of a substance does not change during a phase change. If heat is coming into a substance during a phase change, then this energy is used to break the bonds between the molecules of the substance.
