1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Calculate the amount of heat to be added to warm 150g of ice from -10celsius to produce steam at 110C?

2. Relevant equations

I believe some relevant equations would be :
Q= mcdeltat
Q= mlf

I also have some values as:

Cice= 0.5 Cal/gcelsius
Lf= 80 Cal/g

C water= 1.0 Cal/gC

Steam= 0.5cal/gC
Lv = 540cal/g

3. The attempt at a solution

My attempt is wrong. I just know the answer, but I want to learn how to get to it. Thank you all in advance!

hi domyy!

show us your full calculations, and then we'll see what went wrong, and we'll know how to help!

What did is wrong. I tried something simple but there's probably more that I do not know.
I did:

Q = 150g . 0.5 Cal/gC. 100C = 7500

Also tried,

Q= mlf = 150g . 80 Cal/g = 12,000

But I know the answer is 109.5 kcal.

you seem to have left some things out

can you please write it out properly?

Q = 150g x 0.5cal/gC x 100C = 7500

C= Celsius

Q = mLf = 150g x 80 Cal/g = 12,000

But it's wrong. The answer is 109.5 kcal. I need to know the formulas or steps I am missing. The problem is more than that. I believe I am supposed to find several values through equations and sum them.
