Homework Statement


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


Homework Equations


heat capacity=1.3X102


The Attempt at a Solution


ΔT = 1750°C - 34°C
= 1716 ° C


Q= m X c X ΔT
= 0.6 X 1.3X102 X 1716
=133,848 J

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

You've answered your own question. Think about the analogy of turning water to vapor.

Yes you are, Q = mcΔT just gives you the heat required to raise the temperature from 34°C to 1716°C.

You just need to use Q=mlvap now and add them.

I not sure lead will even by molten at 34o, so you may have to melt it too. ANd is the heat capacity of solid lead and liquid lead the same?
