    When steam condenses to liquid water, 2.26 kj of heat is released per gram. The heat from 168g of steam is used to heat a room containing 6.44 x 10 to the 4th grams of air (20ft x 12 ft x 8 ft). The specific heat of air at normal pressure is 1.015 j/(g.C). What is the change in air temperature, assuming the heat from the steam is all absorbed by air?
