Energetic Properties of Matter
Rank the phases in order of increasing:
Potential Energy?
***WILL NOT BE ON EXAM
䥮 covering thi猠in cla獳s 䤠獴ated 獯lid猠= high 偅 and ga獥猠=
low 偅; however, after di獣u獳son猠with 獴udent猠who we
re confu獥d about adding 偅 on heating curve猬 䤠clarified
that 獯lid猠have the mo獴
negative
potential energy because of intermolecular force attractions, while ideal gases are
assumed to have have
zero
potential energy due to no intermolecular force att
ractions. Because of this, students
were confused since technically, solids still have less PE than liquids or gases. As a result, I w
ill
discuss and clarify in
class on Monday
after
the exam and will not test you on this topic. If, after you’ve mastered a
ll other material in this
unit, you’d like to further investigate this topic yourself with visuals, please consult

Draw and label a heating curve. Label phases and phase transitions, where KE is increasing, and where PE is increasing.
Legs A, C, E: increasing KE. Legs B,
D: increasing PE

–
Specific Heat, Thermal Equilibrium, and Latent Heat
Important about specific heat:
High sp
ecific heat requires more energy to change temperature (will have less
Δ
T)
Low specific heat requires less energy to change temperature (will have greater
Δ
T)
On a graph, high c
p
=
small slope; low c
p
= large slope
What equation do you use when
temperature is changing?
