We’re being asked to determine how much energy (heat) is required to convert 52.0 g of ice at –10°C to steam at 100°C.

We’re going to calculate for the total heat required using the following steps:

Step 1: Calculate the heat required in raising the temperature of 52.0 g of ice from –10°C to 0°C (q1).
Step 2: Calculate the heat required to melt 52.0 g of ice to 52.0 g of water at 0°C (q2).
Step 3: Calculate the heat required in raising the temperature of 52.0 g of water from 0°C to 100°C (q3).
Step 4: Calculate the heat required to evaporate 52.0 g of water to 52.0 g of steam at 100°C (q4).
Step 5: Calculate the total heat required (qtotal).

Problem Details

How much energy (heat) is required to convert 52.0 g of ice at –10.0°C to steam at 100°C?

specific heat of ice:           2.09 J/g·°C          ∆Hfus = 6.02 kJ/mol

specific heat of water:      4.18 J/g·°C            ∆Hvap = 40.7 kJ/mol

specific heat of steam:     1.84 J/g·°C

A) 32.7 kJ

B) 108 kJ

C) 158 kJ

D) 40.2 kJ

E) 229 kJ
