The heat of evaporation of water is 540 cal/g. the specific heat is 0.48 cal/g-c.
What will final temperature be if 1020 calories are added to 10 g of water originally 100 degree C?
Transitions between liquid and gaseous phases typically involve large amounts of energy compared to the specific heat. If heat were added at a constant rate to a mass of liquid water to take it through its phase ...
The solution provides detailed explanations and calculations for the problem.
