how much heat is needed to change 20g mercury at 20c into mercury vapor at the boiling point

    What?

  • dago -

    What does dago tell us about the subject?
    q1 = heat to move temperature Hg from 20 C to boiling point.
    q1= mass Hg x specific heat Hg x (Tfnal-20).
    q2 = heat to vaporize Hg.
    q2 = mass Hg x heat vaporization.

    total heat = q1 + q2.
    Post your work if you need further assistance.
