What is the latent heat of fusion of this material?

What is the latent heat of vaporization of this material?

2. Relevant equations

I know that Q = mL equation applies to this concept, but not sure how to go about it

3. The attempt at a solution

Q = 100kcal?

m = 1

L=Q/m = 100/1 = 100 for fusion?
