    From this question, you must infer that water at -10 C is actually ice, and water at 110 C is steam.

    We actually have to go through 5 steps to calculate the total amount of heat energy required.

    There are two type of steps that you need to familiarize yourself with

    Type I
    Heating step

    q = mC(Tfinal-Tinitial)

    heat(q) equals mass of material(m) being heated, multiplied by the ...
