## Homework Statement

How many grams of ice at 0 degrees Celsius can be melted by the heat released when one gram of steam condenses to water at 100 degrees Celsius?

## Homework Equations

Latent Heat of Fusion of Water: 334 J/g

Latent Heat of Vaporization of Water: 2256 J/g

Specific Heat of Ice: 2.09 J/g degree Celsius

Specific Heat of Water: 4.186 J/g degree Celsius

Specific Heat of Steam: 2.01 J/g degree Celsius

## The Attempt at a Solution

First, I tried relating the Lf and the Lv, but I didn't seem to get anywhere. I know that steam condensing to water releases a lot more energy than would water to ice.

Second, I tried factoring in the specific heat of ice, water, and steam, but I'm not sure how those could help me.

Is there some equation that would help me out? Thanks so much for your help.
