Determine the amount of heat needed to raise 20.0 g of ice at 0 degrees C to steam at 100 degrees C. (ΔHfusion = 334 J/g; Specific heat of (H2O) = 4.18 J/gc; ΔHvap = 2.25 kJ/g)
q1 = heat to melt ice.
q1 = mass ice x heat fusion.
q2 = heat need to raise temperature for liquid water from zero C to liquid water at 100 C.
q2 = mass melted ice x specific heat water x (Tfinal-Tinitial)
q3 = heat needed to vaporize the steam at 100 C.
q3 = mass water x heat vaporization.
Total Q = q1 + q2 + q3.
i am getting 60040J. Is that correct?
60.040 kJ is correct.
Ok I see. thank you very much :-)
