It would have helped to give the data below. Here is how you do the problem.

I assume there is a density. Use the density to calculate the mass. mass -= volume x density.

Then for heat used there are two formula to use.

Within a phase you use

mass x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial)

For example, for liquid ethanol between the freezing point and boiling point you will use

mass ethanol x specific heat ethanol x (b.p. temp - freezing point temp).

Then for the change of phase use

mass ethanol x heat fusion at the melting/freezing point or

mass ethanol x heat vaporization at the boiling point.

Then add all of the heats together for the total.

Post your work if you get stuck.
