pizza rolls 5c

For 5C on the pizza rolls, it is false that one cannot calculate the entropy of vaporization for water at room temp because water has a boiling point of 373K. How would you calculate entropy of vaporization without raising the temperature? I dont understand how it is false.

I believe their explanation was that room temperature= 298K and water vaporizes at 298K therefore you can calculate entropy. I think its similar to the problems we have had where you have to divide entropy up in to steps (since it is a state function) and you can navigate your way to the DeltaSvap of water for that temp. knowing that it has a boiling pt. of 373K. Look at problem 12B- it's sort of an example of the steps you'd take to calculate the DeltaSvap of this.

We can calculate entropy of vaporization at temperatures other than the boiling point. Just multiply the entropy of vaporization by the temperature (in Kelvin) and the # of moles of water.
