why does the temp. remains constant during the melting of ice even thoug heat is supplied contiously?
The temperature remains constant during the melting of ice even though heat is supplied continuously because the temperature is supplied for changing the state of matter not for increasing the temperature.The heat of the temperature is used by the particles of ice and they vibrate faster and breaks the force of attraction and then it becomes liquid.
when the heat is supplied continuously to the ice, its temperature does not increase. But the ice turns into water. The temperature does not increase because the ice is absorbing the energy in the form of latent heat of fusion to over come the force of attraction aming the particles of Ice. This heat is hidden and is called latent heat of fusion.
