Compounds like CCl2F2 are known as chloroflurocarbons, or CFCs. These compounds were once widely used as refrigerants but are now being replaced by compounds that are believed to be less harmful to the environment. The heat of vaporization of CCl2F2 is 289 J/g. How many grams of this substance must evaporate to freeze 203g of water initially at 17°C.
