Phase Diagrams
Directions:
On this worksheet you will be working with phase diagrams. The y-axis on the graph represents the substance's temperature, in ºC, while the x-axis represents the amount of time, in seconds, that heat, in joules, has been added to the substance. The coorindates of the points will be given as needed in the question statements below the diagram.
