How Much Heat

SATPHY-JJ93DX

Use the heating-cooling curve below to choose the table that most accurately ranks the amount of heat absorbed by the substance represented during the listed processes from greatest amount of heat (1) to least amount of heat (5).

Assume that heat was added to this substance uniformly at a steady rate.
