    I'm just not sure how to apply it to this problem.

    To apply it you simply plug in the numbers, punch them into your calculator, turn the crank and out comes the answers.
    ln(p2/p1) = [DHvap/R](1/T1 - 1/T2)
    You have p1 @ T1 and p2 @ T2. R is 8.314, solve for DHvap. The unit for DHvap will be joules.
