The answer to the question "What happens to the kinetic energy and potential energy of a solid as it melts" is that the kinetic energy stays the same and the potential energy increases. Why is this correct though?

    the energy is eaten up by turning it into heat right?

    the kinetic energy increases as a solid melts. It takes heat to melt a solid. Heat is energy and that energy is added to the kinetic energy of the molecules of the solid. The potential energy...im not sure what you mean...there are different types and heat will not effect them too much
