What is a thermogram?
It is a picture that shows the different amounts of temperatures in different colour that are being emitted
2 of 5
What does specific heat capacity mean?
The amount of energy it takes to raise 1kg of a substance by 1 degree
3 of 5
What does specific latent heat mean?
The amount of energy it takes to melt or boil 1kg of a substance without changing its temperature
4 of 5
Why do graphs that show changes of state have flat parts?
Because the energy is used at this point to break the intermolecular bonds, rather than changing the temperature
