Heat Curve

Postby Helen Mejia 1I » Sat Feb 02, 2019 3:07 pm

Are we supposed to memorize the Heat curve or will we be given the heat curve?

We will probably have to know the heat curve and the general concepts that it is indicating. I think it would also be helpful to know the key temperatures where a phase change is occurring in water (0 degrees Celsius and 100 degrees Celsius).

I think we just have to know how to read the graph and draw information from it

I'm pretty sure we will be given the heat curve.

We will be given the curve if we need the values to solve a problem. Lavelle never makes us memorize constants.

It is probably best to understand the heat curve and how to apply it to questions.

I believe you should memorize it as it will help with bomb Calorimeter problems and other problems with various phase changes. Even if the curve is given I believe it would be helpful to memorize it anyways. It will save you time on the exam.
