Homes may be heated by pumping hot water through radiators. What mass of water (in g) will provide the same amount of heat when cooled from 94.1 to 44.5°C, as the heat provided when 187 g of steam is cooled from 118°C to 100.°C. (Assume that the specific heat of liquid water is 4.187 J/g•OC over the given temperature range. Also assume that the specific heat of water vapor above its boiling point is 2.078 J/g•°C.)
