Phase Changes

Postby Maria Trujillo 1L » Sun Feb 03, 2019 9:36 pm

For clarification. When something goes through a phase change, it does not change temperature but it does take time? If so, won't it eventually change in temperature after the phase change though?

It only doesn't change temperature when the phase change is occurring, because the energy being provided to or leaving the system is going towards breaking /forming bonds, not increasing or decreasing the temperature. Once the phase change is finished, then the energy will go towards changing temperature.

Energy is being used to elevate energy within the system, not raise the temperature which is why they can be different phases but same constant temperature.
