- Explain the energetic nature of phase changes.
- Explain heating and cooling curves (heat of fusion, heat of vaporization, heat, melting point, and boiling point).
- Interpret the data presented in phase diagrams.
- Infer simple calorimetric calculations based on the concepts of heat lost equals heat gained and specific heat.
