### Practice Midterm from Sunday's Review Sess - #3C

Posted:

**Sun Feb 11, 2018 8:48 pm**the problem was: True/False: One cannot calculate the entropy of vaporization for water at room temperature because water has a boiling point of 373K.

The answer was False. Can someone please help explain this to me because I didn't understand the bit in the session. He started setting up a calculation and I got kind of lost. I am confused because it's not like you are heating the water to 373K to vaporize/boil it. I know water evaporates even below 373K but he split the calculation into three parts and I was just hoping someone could explain it to me. Thank you.
