Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, November 27, 2008 at 8:22pm.

The amount of heat Q needed to turn a mass m of room temperature T_1 water into steam at 100degrees C T_2 can be found using the specific heat c of water and the heat of vaporization H_v of water at 1 atmosphere of pressure.

Suppose that a commercial espresso machine in a coffee shop turns 1.50 kg of water at 22.0degreesC into steam at 100degreesC. If c = 4187 and H_v=2258 kJ/kg, how much heat Q is absorbed by the water from the heating resistor inside the machine?
Assume that this is a closed and isolated system.
