Heating and Cooling Curve

Postby Cecilia Jardon 1I » Sun Feb 03, 2019 4:45 pm

Just to make sure the cooling curve would just be starting from the end of the heating curve and then going down?

Yes, the cooling curve is the heating curve but in the opposite direction (going from right to left). Temperature is on the y-axis, so reading a heating curve from right to left shows a decrease in temperature which shows the cooling process. Hope this helped!
