1. Three steps are involved: steam changing to water at 100 C; water at 100 C cooling to 0 C; water at 0 C freezing to ice at 0 C.
Steam changing to water:
Heat of vaporization of water is 539.4 cal/g
Heat = Heat of Vap. x mass = 539.4 cal/g x 75.0 g = 40,500 cal
Cooling water from 100 C to 0 C:
Heat = mass x specific heat x T change
Heat = 75.0 g x 1.00 cal/gC x 100 C = 7500 cal
Freezing of water at 0 C:
The heat of fusion of water is 79.7 cal/g
Heat = heat of fusion x mass = 79.7 cal/g x 75.0 g = 5980 cal
Total heat = 40,500 + 7500 + 5980 = 53980 cal or 5.40 x 10^4 cal (3 sig figs) = 54.0 kcal

2. The work above is correct except the process is a bit confusing and hard to follow. I teach this process to my Honors Chemistry students in a similar way, just try to start with your grams and use factor labeling for the easiest way to solve.
