## Homework Statement

How much energy is required to change a 35 g ice cube from ice at −15 C to steam at 117 C?

The speciﬁc heat of ice is 2090 J/kg * C, the speciﬁc heat of water is 4186 J/kg * C, the speciﬁc heat of stream is 2010 J/kg * C, the heat of fusion is 3.33 × 10^5 J/kg, and the heat of vaporization is 2.26 × 10^6 J/kg.

Answer in units of J.

## Homework Equations

Q=m*L

Q=m*c*[tex]\Delta[/tex]T

## The Attempt at a Solution

35g*15C*2090J/kg*C - heat to raise ice's temp. to freezing

+ 3.33 * 10^5 J/kg *35g - heat to melt ice into water

+ 100C *4186J/kg*C *35g - heat to raise water temperature to boiling

+ 2.26*10^6 J/kg* 35g - heat to boil water into vapor

+ 2010 J/kg*C *117C *35g - heat to make vapor rise to 117 C

=114734 J
