## Homework Statement

A rigid cylinder contains 9.0g of nitrogen at 20 ∘C.

What is the minimum amount of heat energy that must be removed to liquify the nitrogen?

## Homework Equations

Heat Energy

H = Cp * m * ΔT

H = Heat Energy

Cp = Heat Capacity

m = mass (in Kg)

ΔT = change in temperature (in Celsius)

Heat of Condensation (Equal to Vaporisation)

H = Hc * m

Hc= Heat of condensation

m= mass (in moles)

## The Attempt at a Solution

Heat Capacity of nitrogen = 1.04 kJ/kg*K.

Nitrogen is a liquid at -196 C, so ΔT = -196 - 20 = -216

H = Heat Capacity * mass * ΔT

H = 1.04 kJ/kg*K * 0.009 kg * 215 = 2.02 kJ

---

H= Heat of condensation * mass (in moles)

H= 5.56 kJ*mol * 0.32 moles = 1.78 kJ

2.02 kJ + 1.78 kJ = 3.8 kJ

3.80 kJ of heat energy is required to liquify the nitrogen.

Answer isn't correct. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.
