    The vapor pressure of a liquid in the temperature range 200 to 260K was found to fit the expression
    ln( P/torr) = 16.255 - (2501.8 / T/K)

    Calculate the enthalpy of vaporization of the liquid.

    First of all P/torr refers to pressure using torr unit
    And T/K refers to temperature in K unit.

    Theory:
    The Clausius-Clapeyron Equation is the relationship between the temperature of a liquid and its vapor pressure. It can be written ...
