    Heat Required to Convert Ethanol to its Vapor Phase

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Ethanol, C2H5OH, melts at -114 degrees C and boils at 78 degreesC. The enthalpy of fusion of ethanol is 5.02kj/mol and the enthalpy of vaporization is 38.56kj/mol. The specific heats of solid and liquid ethanol are 0.97J/g-K and 2.3J/g-K respectively. How much heat is required to convert 75.0g of ethanol at -120 degreesC to the vapor phase at 78 degreesC. Please include the conversion and steps so I can understand the problem.

    Thank you for your help.
