Heating curves

Postby Ekayana Sethi 2K » Sun Jan 14, 2018 5:23 pm

In the book it says that "The steeper the slope of a heating curve, the lower is the heat capacity." why is this true? It also says that "The slope of a heating curve is steeper for a phase with a low heat capacity than for one with a high heat capacity." could someone explain this too?

It means that in a given heat amount, one with lower heat capacity changes the temperature more rapidly than the one with higher heat capacity.
