Latent Heat of Vaporization

  • #1

Homework Statement



What mass of steam at 100 Celcius must be added to 1.00 kg of ice at 0 Celcius to yield liquid water at 20 Celcius.


Homework Equations



Q = mL
Q = mc(deltaT)
change in energy = 0

The Attempt at a Solution



Ice
m= 1.00
c = 2100
T1 = 0
Tf =
L = 333

water
m=
c = 4190
T1 =
Tf= 20

Steam
m = ????
c = 2010
L = 2260
T1 = 100
Tf =

I am stil missing some of the needed information and i am not sure how to organize my equations.

Divide into two parts.

How much heat is needed to melt the ice?

How much heat is needed to raise the temp of this water from 0 C to 20 C?

This whole heat is supplied by a certain amount of steam, which first gives up the latent heat of evaporation, and then cools from 100 c to 20 C. Equate this to the sum of the first two.

(Remember, there are two kinds of latent heat involved here. Don't mix them up)
