Heating Curves and Specific Heat


The flat lines on a heating curve represent

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

The sloped lines on a heating curve represent…

  • A constant temperature.

  • A change in state of matter.

  • A constant state of matter.

  • A constant speed of particles


Which portion of the curve represents the solid melting

When does kinetic energy increase on a heating curve

When does kinetic energy increase on a heating curve?

  • On the flat portions.

  • On the sloped lines.

  • Every point on the curve.


Heating curves and specific heat

If the specific heat of ice is 0.5 cal/gC°, 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?

  • 1000 cal

  • -1000 cal

  • 2000 cal

  • -2000 cal


What is enthalpy heat of fusion

What is enthalpy (heat) of fusion?

  • Amount of energy to raise temperature of 1g by 10

  • Amount of energy needed to boil 1g

For the same amount of heat added a substance with a large specific heat

For the same amount of heat added, a substance with a large specific heat…

  • Has a smaller increase in temp.

  • Has a larger increase in temp.

  • Has the same increase in temp.


Heating curves and specific heat
