Phase change equation

Postby Mya Majewski 1L » Sun Feb 10, 2019 7:01 pm

For 6th edition 8.85 or a phase change in general, do you use q=nDeltaH or deltaH=nDeltaH because for this phase change it uses deltaH=n x deltaHfus?

When the temperature is rising you need to use q=mcT (This is on the slanted lines of the heating curve)
When the temperature is constant and the substance is undergoing a phase change you use: mass X enthalpy
