Ethanol (C2H5OH) boils at a temperature of 78.3oC.
What amount of energy, in joules, is necessary to heat to boiling and then completely vaporize a 20.0 g sample of ethanol initially at a temperature of 13.6oC.

The specific heat of ethanol is approximately constant at 2.44 JK-1g-1
The heat of vaporization of ethanol is 38.56 kJ mol-1.

  1. energy= mass*Lf+ mass*c*deltaTemp
    look at the units of the constants.
    Hv is in kJ per mole.
    energy= moles*Lf+mass*c*deltaTEmp

    now, for the first term, convert 20g ethanol to moles ethanol, and you have it.
