#### Answer:

We need $\text{(i) the heat capacity of ice....}$

#### Explanation:

And $\text{(ii) the LATENT heat of fusion of ice....}$

And $\text{(iii) the heat capacity of liquid water....}$

And $\text{(iv) the heat of vaporization of water....}$

And $\text{(v) the heat capacity of steam....}$

You need these data to make an estimate for the heat needed to make the given transition. You will find sample problems in your physical chem text.
