1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 100 g of steam at 100 °C is mixed with 500 g of water at 25 °C. What is the final temperature of the mixture? 2. Relevant equations Q= mL Q= mcΔT 3. The attempt at a solution Heat given by to water = heat loss at condensation = mLv = (0.1) (2.26 E 6) = 226000 J Maximum possible heat water can take = mc ΔT = (0.5) (4186)(100-25) = 156975 J Because water does not take up all the latent heat from steam, only some of the steam condensate. I wonder is my conclusion right? Or will latent heat given by steam actually boils water? Thanks!
