Phase Diagrams
Topics:
On this worksheet you will be working with phase diagrams. The y-axis on the graph represents the substance's temperature, in ºC, while the x-axis represents the amount of time, in seconds, that heat, in joules, has been added to the substance. The coorindates of the points will be given as needed in the question statements below the diagram.
Page Directions
The numerical values in this worksheet are randomly generated allowing students the opportunity to conveniently practice, and drill, common situations.
Before beginning any given worksheet, please look over all of the questions and make sure that there are
no duplicate
answers shown for the same question. If duplicates are present simply refresh the page until every answer is unique.
In order to check an answer
(even when you are just starting the worksheet on Question 1)
it is necessary to
any questions that you have not answered. Once you start submitting answers, the page may be checked as many times as necesasary without changing the randomized answers. Relevant scoring will be provided at the top of the page only when you answer all of the questions on your original submission.
