LAB 2A PHASE CHANGE DIAGRAMS AND GRAPHS
Simulations of substances changing phase: http://bit.ly/1gynsw2
1. Type in the bit.ly address to go to the simulation page.
2. Click anywhere on the Harcourt page after it loads.
3. For each of the three solids.
a. Read the graph and enter in the melting and boiling temperature. Click check.
b. Copy the phase change graph as a line graph. (no need to color in underneath like they do).
c. Record the melting and boiling temperatures.
d. Label the melting point (mp) and boiling point (bp) on the graph.
Melting Temp________ Boiling Temp ________
Melting Temp________ Boiling Temp ________
Melting Temp________ Boiling Temp ________
Analysis:
What happens to the temperature graph when the substance is melting?_____________________________
What is the substance changing from and to when it is melting? __________________________________
What happens to the temperature graph when the substance is boiling? _____________________________
What is the substance changing from and to when it is boiling? __________________________________
What is true about a substance’s phase when its temperature is increasing? _________________________
Fill in the table below.
1. Draw a model of what the substance in the beaker looks like in each of its phases for the macroscopic drawing.
2. Draw a model of what the particles look like, showing correct spacing between particles.
Refer to this website if you need assistance with the microscopic diagrams:

5. Look at your particle drawings. What happens to the density of the substance as it changes from a liquid to a
gas? Explain how you know.
