Find the mass of 0°C ice that 10 g of 100°C steam will completely melt.
Solution 3P Introduction We have to first calculate the energy released by 100°C steam to become water of 100°C. The we can calculate the mass of the ice that can be melt using this amount of energy. Solution Step 1 The heat released by the condensation of steam is given by Q steam m steam steam Here m is the mass and L is the latent heat of the steam. steam steam Now we have m steam 10 g L steam 540 cal/g So we have Q = (10 g)(540 cal) = 5400 cal stem
