We’re being asked to determine how much energy (heat) is required to convert 52.0 g of ice at –10°C to steam at 100°C.

We’re going to calculate for the total heat required using the following steps:

Step 1: Calculate the heat required in raising the temperature of 52.0 g of ice from –10°C to 0°C (q1).
Step 2: Calculate the heat required to melt 52.0 g of ice to 52.0 g of water at 0°C (q2).
Step 3: Calculate the heat required in raising the temperature of 52.0 g of water from 0°C to 100°C (q3).
Step 4: Calculate the heat required to evaporate 52.0 g of water to 52.0 g of steam at 100°C (q4).
Step 5: Calculate the total heat required (qtotal). ###### Problem Details
