If it requires 70.4 kJ of heat to boil 1.60 moles of water, what is its enthalpy of vaporization? 


Expert Answer

Step 1

Thermodynamic is the branch of chemistry that mainly deals with the heat transfer between system and surroundings. Here system is the substance for which the heat content is studied and remaining part of universe is consider as the surroundings.

Step 2

The heat content of any substance or reaction system can be expressed in terms of enthalpy whereas the randomness in the system is associated with the entropy of system.

Step 3

The molar heat of vaporization is also called as molar en...
