How much heat (in kJ)is required to convert 2.565kg of liquid sulfur dioxide at the boiling point to a gas at 60C?
BP of SO2 is -10C and delta H vap is 25.73kJ/mol. Specific heat capacity of the gas is 0.622 J/g*K

I don't know what formula to use to calculate this problem??

  1. I'm sure this will look familiar after you see it.
    You remember the heat to raise the temperature of ice from -50 to steam at 300 C. This is done the same way.

    q1 = heat to vaporize liquid SO2 at it boiling point.
    q1 = mass liquid SO2 x heat vaporization.

    q2 = heat to move vapor SO2 from its boiling point to 60 C.
    q2 = mass vapor SO2 x specific heat SO2 gas x (Tfinal-Tinitial)

    Total heat = q1 + q2
    Watch the units. I would keep everything in grams and joules, then convert to the unit I wanted at the end after adding q1 and q2.
