3. Sketch a graph to illustrate supercooling


4. Sketch a cooling curve for naphthalene


Label the freezing point of naphthalene as T1.

5. What happen to the kinetic energy of particle as it is cooled from E to

Answer: Kinetic energy decreases

6. Why temperature of naphthalene remain unchanged from F to G?

Answer: Heat released by the particles is balanced by the heat lost to
the surrounding during the formation of the bond between liquid
particles during freezing.
