A jet of steam @ 100 degrees Celsius is directed into a hole in a large block of ice. After the steam has switched off, the condensed steam and melted ice are both a 0 degrees Celsius. The mass of water collected is 206 g. Calculate the mass of steam condensed.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Specific heat capacity of water is 4200

Specific heat capacity of ice is 2100

Latent heat of fusion is 330

Latent heat of vaporization is 2260

I keep on getting 68.5g as an answer but apparently it is 22.6g

Please help me with showing the steps.

Thank you
