**1. Homework Statement**

A 0.2 kg block of ice at -15*C is placed into a pan on a stove, heated to a liquid, and then to vapour with a final temperature of 115*C. Calculate the total amount of heat required for this process.

**2. Homework Equations**

Eh = mc(t2 - t1)

Lf (or Lv) = Eh / m

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Etotal = Emelting + Evapourization

Emelting = mct

= (0.2kg)(4.2x10^3)(0+15*C)

= 12 600 J

Evapourization = mct

= (0.2kg)(4.2x10^3)(115-0*C)

= 96 600 J

Etotal = 12600 + 96 600J

= 109 200 J or 1.1 x 10^5

What am i doing wrong? The answer is 6.2 x 10^5 J.
