Heat and Form

Postby Rebekah_Park_2C » Wed Jan 13, 2016 1:07 pm

When objects get heated to the point of melting, is there a point where the temperature cannot increase anymore?

Objects have heating curves, the flat part of the curves pertain to phase change. So when ice melts at 0oC, it remains the same temperature until it is completely in liquid phase. Use the enthalpy of phase change at these flat parts of the curves and heat capacities when temperature changes in one phase.
