Why does the temperature not change during a phase change?

During the change of state, the molecules of a substance absorb energy to overcome the strong intermolecular force of attraction between them. Hence the heat energy which we supply is absorbed by them for this purpose. So change in temperature is not observed.


Does the frequency of a wave remain constant if the medium temperature and pressure do not change?

no


Does the cooling constant in newton's law of cooling change depending on the temperature of the vessel?

No. By definition, the constant does not change with temperature for a given cooling system. The constant "represents" all the particular characteristics of the cooling system, except for the time and temperature variables. If temperature influences the system characteristics, the vessel's dimensions, heat capacity, or heat transfer properties, for example, all of these effects will be completely accounted for by the single constant.


What is the latent heat of sublimation?

No. Latent heat of vaporization is defined as the energy required to VAPORIZE 1 kilogram of a liquid completely at its boiling point. Latent heat of sublimation is the energy required to SUBLIME 1 kilogram of a solid completely into a gas at constant temperature. They're different. Note that the temperatures should be constant during the processes.


If an object is moving at a constant velocity what do you know about its acceleration?

"Acceleration" means change of velocity. If velocity is constant, then acceleration is zero.

Explain what happens to the temperature of an ice cube as it melts?

Temperature of melting iceis a constant property: it does not change during melting (stays 0oC, this is even one of the the defined value of the Celsius temperature scale)(for any other melting solid the same is valid at each melting point temperature)


Why does the temperature of any substance remain constant during the change of a state?

because energy is required to break the intermolecular forces in the molecule

How does temperature change during change of physical change?

Temperature remains constant during the change in phase (physical state).


Does the gas constant R vary with temperature?

No, the gas constant, or any constant, is constant meaning it doesn't change.


Can an object be accelerating with constant velocity?

No, since acceleration is defined as a change in velocity. If there is no change, there is no acceleration.
