A student heats a beaker containing ice and water. He measures the temperature of the content of the beaker as a function of time. Which of the following (Fig.) would correctly represent the result? Justify your choice.

temperatur with respect to timed) At the start of the experiment temperature of the mixture would be zero as water and ice will be in equilibrium. When students start heating initially latent heat will be utilised to melt the ice. Hence, the temperature did not increase for a certain amount of time. When students heat the mixture further the temperature of the water increases gradually.
