The Energy of Phase Changes

Unit 5: Unit 6: Energy
Lesson 4 of 9

Objective: Students will be able to explain how energy plays a role in phase changes and be able to perform calculations using latent heat of fusion and vaporization through taking notes, working with partners, watching a video, performing a lab, and answering practice questions.

Big Idea: The phase of matter depends on the energy of the particles, and phase changed require either the absorption or release of energy.
