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

Use the Clausius-Clapeyron Equation to calculate the vapor pressure at 325°C. That is the pressure that must be applied to condense the steam at 325°C.

Ln(P2/P1) = (∆H/R)[(T2-T1)/T2T1]

P1 = 1 atm

∆H = 40700J

R = 8.3145 J/°K.mol

T2 = (325+273) = 598°K

T1 = (100+273) = 373°K

P2 = (unknown)

[NOTE: The pressure needed is quite high]
