We have to describe why the heating curve of water has segments where heat is added to the system, but the temperature does not rise.
We can see that the two segments are represented as horizontal lines and they are at the melting point and the boiling point of water.
Examine the heating curve for water.
Explain why the curve has two segments in which heat is added to the water but the temperature does not rise.
