Unformatted text preview: raise one degree celsius or one kelvin we need to add a of energy. The liquid phase is very steep and has a very small speciﬁc heat. The gas phase is between the liquid and solid, and its speciﬁc heat is between that of the liquid and solid phases. The ﬂat region at 40 ◦ C represents the heat of melting while the ﬂat region at 210 ◦ C represents the heat of vaporization. We quantify the two by noting that the heat of melting is much larger (spans a much larger energy range) than the heat of vaporization. Note that this is probably verbose; more words than you needed to use on the quiz. 2...
