(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

How much heat does it take to vaporize 600g of lead that is initially at 34°C?

2. Relevant equations

heat capacity=1.3X10^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

ΔT = 1750°C - 34°C

= 1716 ° C

Q= m X c X ΔT

= 0.6 X 1.3X10^{2}X 1716

=133,848 J

Am I suppose to factor in the change of state? Is there latent vaporization?
