Specific heat of ice water

  1. Jun 12, 2008 #1
    How much heat is needed to convert 1 kg of ice at −100C to steam at 1000C?.
    Remember ice and water do not have the same specific heat.
    I can use the relation for specific heat?

    You will have to use latent heats as well for phase changes.
