BIO Steam Burns Versus Water Burns. What is the amount of heat input to your skin when it receives the heat released (a) by 25.0 g of steam initially at 100.0o C, when it is cooled to skin temperature (34.0o C)? (b) By 25.0 g of water initially at 100.0o C, when it is cooled to 34.0o C? (c) What does this tell you about the relative severity of burns from steam versus burns from hot water?

Solution 52E Mass of steam m = 25.0 g m = 0.025 kg Latent heat of vaporization of water L = 2258000 J/kg 0 0 0 Temperature change T = 100 C 34 C = 66 C 0 Specific heat of water s = 4184 J/kg C (a) Total amount of heat released by the steam Q = mL + msT Q = 0.025 kg × 2258000 J/kg + 0.025 × 4184 J/kg C × 66...
