Homework Help: physics

Posted by Angel on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 at 8:31pm.

The specific heat of mercury is .03cal/g*C, and it's boiling point is 357*C. The specific heat of water is 1 cal/g*C. It takes 65 calories of energy to vaporize one gram of mercury and 540 calories to vaporize one gram of water. If both substances begin at about 22*C does it take more energy to boil a gram of mercury or a gram of water? If someone can give me the formula to use, I can try to figure it out myself! Thanks
