Can you pls explain how to calculate this exercise, thank you.

2. A calorimeter is a device designed to measure energy transferred as heat, for example, from a chemical reaction. A differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) is a device using which the heat capacity can be measured as a function of Temperature. Thus, phase transitions can be mapped in such a device. Phase transitions in lipid bilayers are commonly measured using DSC. You can read more about calorimeters in Atkins, pp 44-45. The enthalpy of a phase transition is obtained from: T1 (This equation arises directly from integrating dH-CpdT) The image (A) below is from a DSC thermogram (plot of heat capacity versus temperature) of a biological sample. The right panel (B) shows an isosceles triangle to approximate the phase transition. Answer the following guestions based on the theoram ㄒ

2d. The enthalpy of a phase transition can be calculated by integrating the heat capacity over temperature: T2 which is the area under the Cp versus T curve. Calculate the enthalpy of transition if the phase transition can be approximated by an isosceles triangle as shown in Figure (B). The height of the triangle is 12 k]/K and the width of base is 2 K.
