# How many BTU are required to change one pound of ice at 20 degrees Fahrenheit to steam at 220 degrees Fahrenheit?

1)This is a 5 part question. The first is realizing that 20F to 32F uses .5BTU per pound per degree. That means it takes 32-20=12*.5=6BTUs to get the ice to 32F. 2)Then you need to know the Latent Heat of Fusion for Ice which is 144BTUs (given). Lets assumes the ice changes from ice to water instantaneously at 32F. 3)Next we calculate the BTUs from 32F to 212F. Which is 1BTU per pound per degree F. 212-32=180 so it take 180BTUS. 4)Next we have to use the Latent Heat of Vaporization of water which will say instantaneously converts water to vapor. This takes 970BTUS (given). 5)Then we calculate the BTUS from 212F to 220F. Which is .5BTUs per pound per degree F which is 220-212=8*.5=4BTUs...... Finally add up all the BTUs and you get 6+144+180+970+4=1304BTUs. Study guides
