Self-Test 9.15A

Postby Alex_Wagas_3K » Thu Feb 02, 2017 2:04 pm

Calculate the entropy change of the surroundings when 1.00 mol H2O(l) vaporizes at 90°C and 1 bar. Take the enthalpy of vaporization of water as
40.7 kJ*mol-1.

For this problem, you do not need to set the 40.7 kJ*mol-1 negative because it is already given at the vaporization stage correct?

Yes, you are correct. The enthalpy of vaporization is positive because it represents the energy that must be added to the liquid substance to transform a quantity of that substance into gas.
