The molar heat capacity of C6H6(l) is 136 J/mol x degrees centigrade and of C6H6 (g) is 81.6 J/mol x degrees centigrade. The molar heat of fusion for benzene is 9.92 kJ/mol and its molar heat of vaporization is 30.8 kJ/mole. The melting point of benzene is 5.5 degrees centigrade, its boiling point is 80.1 degrees centigrade and its molecular weight is 78.0 g/mol
how much heat would be required to convert 312 g of solid benzene (C6H6 (s)) at 5.5 degrees centigrade into benzene vapor (C6H6 (g)) at 100.0 degrees centigrade.
