We have to determine why the temperature remains constant at segment marked 2 in the given diagram.
We can see that the segment marked 2 is at the melting point of water.
Refer to the figure below to answer each question.
In moving from left to right along the line segment labeled 2 on the graph, heat is absorbed, but the temperature remains constant. Where does the heat go?
