By the end of this unit students will be able to:

  • Explain the relationship between equilibrium and changes of state.
  • Label and interpret phase diagrams.
  • Label each section of a heating curve and describe it based on potential and kinetic energy changes.
  • Use LeChatelier’s Principle to determine how a reaction will shift and what effect it has on the reactants and products. 
  • Perform specific heat calculations using q=mCΔT .
  • Solve problems using heat of fusion and heat of vaporization formulas.
