Heating Curves and Specific Heat. The flat lines on a heating curve represent…. A temperature change. A constant state of matter. A change in state. A change in kinetic energy. The sloped lines on a heating curve represent…. A constant temperature. A change in state of matter.
If the specific heat of ice is 0.5 cal/gC°, how much heat would have to be added to 200 g of ice, initially at a temperature of -10°C, to raise the ice to the melting point?
