The temperature remains constant during the boiling of water even though heat is supplied continously.Why?
The temperature remains constant during the boiling of water even though heat is supplied continuously. This is because, the heat supplied is absorbed by the water particles and this heat increases their kinetic energy. Thus, because of an increase in kinetic energy, the bond between the water particles are cut down and they move more freely, compared to water. Hence, they become gas. So, this is why the temperature remains constant even though heat is supplied continuously to the water.
