Why  does the  temperature of a substance remain constant during its melting point or boiling point

 

Best Answer

The temperature of a substance remains constant at its melting and boiling points untill all the substance melts or boils because, the heat supplied is continuously used up in changing the state of the substance by overcoming the forces of attraction between the particles. This heat energy absorbed without showing  any rise in temperature is given the name latent heat of fusion/latent heat of vaporization
