Homework Help: Phase Change Question

  1. Jul 14, 2011 #1
    When a substance undergoes a phase change, the added heat changes (a) the temperature, (b) the kinetic energy, (c) the potential energy, (d) the mass of the substance.
    I believe the answer is kinetic energy because the molecules move faster.

    Only one answer is correct so I think the best answer is kinetic energy which is option B. What do you think, am I right?
