Suppose that 0.95 g of water condenses on a 75.0-g block of iron that is initially at 22 °C. If the heat released during condensation goes only to warming the iron block, what is the final temperature (in °C) of the iron block? (Assume a constant enthalpy of vaporization for water of 44.0 kJ/mol.)


Expert Answer

Step 1

The specific heat can be defined as the amount of heat is needed to raise the temperature of the system by one-degree celsius. The heat released or absorbed is dependent on the specific heat.

Step 2

The expression to calculate the moles of water is shown below:
