Step 1

Part A:

The question is to determine the amount of heat required to convert 0.6 kg of boiling water to 0.6 kg of steam at 1000C

Mass m = 0.6 kg = 600 grams

Given Latent heat of Vaporization of water = 540 Cal/gram

Step 2

The question is to determine the amount heat required to heat 0.6kg (600 ...
