What pressure would have to be applied to steam at 325C to condense the steam to liquid water (H vap = 40.7 kJ/mol)?

Use the Clausius-Clapeyron Equation to calculate the vapor pressure at 325C. That is the pressure that must be applied to condense the steam at 325C.
Ln(P2/P1) = (∆H/R)[(T2-T1)/T2T1]
P1 = 1 atm
∆H = 40700J
R = 8.3145 J/K.mol
T2 = (325+273) = 598K
T1 = (100+273) = 373K
P2 = (unknown)

[NOTE: The pressure needed is quite high]
