what are some general equations that we should know for like heat of fusion or heat of vaporization?

Enthalpy of sublimation = H of vapor - H of solid

Enthalpy of vaporization = enthalpy of vapor - enthalpy of liquid
Enthalpy of fusion = enthalpy of liquid - enthalpy of solid

The most general equation is ΔH = H(final) - H(initial), and just plug in value for any final and initial state.

The heat of fusion uses unit of mass (the specific heat of fusion), and the molar heat of fusion is the enthalpy change per amount of substance referred to in moles. Using the example of H2O, you first find the mass of ice melted with the volume of melt. Then you calculate the energy (in joules) released by the x grams of liquid water as it cooled through ∆t.

I think it would be good to know the general format of each equation, being ΔH = H(final) - H(initial), in order to be able to derive all equations such as:
ΔH(vaporization) = H(vapor) - H(liquid)
ΔH(fusion) = H(liquid) - H(solid)
... these two equations are also essential in being able to algebraically solve for the equation of sublimation which is:
ΔH(sublimation)= ΔH(fusion) + ΔH(vaporization)

To find the heat needed for a temperature change, the formula is q = mC∆t, where m is mass and C is the specific heat of the substance in J/(g)(c).
To find the heat needed for a phase change, the formula is q = n∆H, where n is the number of moles and ∆H is given in kJ/mol.
