Why does the temperature remain constant during the boiling of water even though heat is supplied continuously?
The latent heat which we supply is used up in overcoming the forces of attraction between the particles of water during the boiling of water. Latent heat does not increase the kinetic energy of the particles of water, so the temperature of ice does not rise during the change of state.
