1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Heat is added to a 1.0-kg solid sample of a material at 200 C. The figure shows the temperature of the material as a function of the heat added.


What is the latent heat of fusion of this material?
What is the latent heat of vaporization of this material?

2. Relevant equations

I know that Q = mL equation applies to this concept, but not sure how to go about it

3. The attempt at a solution

Q = 100kcal?
m = 1
L=Q/m = 100/1 = 100 for fusion?

The latent heats occur during a phase change, so when the temperatures are constant.

so the latent heat of fusion is 100 kcal? or at the beginning of the constant: 50kcal?

yes it looks like the fusion is 100 kcal, the vaporization would be in the other region.
