PHYSICS/CHEM: latent heat of fusion, specific heat?

As an attentive scientist, you put heat into a 0.500 kg sample of solid material at the rate of 10.0 kJ/min while recording its temperature as a function of time. You plot your data and obtain the graph shown in the figure http://www.flickr.com/photos/39538700@N08/3662193518/ Questions: A) What is the latent... show more As an attentive scientist, you put heat into a 0.500 kg sample of solid material at the rate of 10.0 kJ/min while recording its temperature as a function of time.
