The problem did not specify the initial temperature of Titanium tetrachloride, TiCl4 nor we are given the specific heat. In this case, we'll assume that TiClis already at melting temperature and we will only be concerned with the Latent heat which is the heat needed for phase change.  ΔHfusion is given in KJ/mol so the formula we'll use is given below:
