    This quiz covers aspects related to phase transitions or phase changes. You will encounter calculations and short-answer questions involving the following terms and concepts:

    • freezing point, melting point
    • simulation curve, vaporization curve
    • simulation, deposition
    • boiling point, condensation point
    • cooling curve, heating curve
    • heat of vaporization, molar heat of vaporization
    • heat of sublimation, molar heat of sublimation
    • heat capacity
    • phase transition
    • packing of spheres
    • calculations of density, unit cell edges, number of atoms,
    • distances between atoms for simple cubic packing,
    • f.c.c packing, and body-centered cubic structures
    • hexagonal closest packing
