# How many grams of formaldehyde are needed to produce enough heat in a combustion reaction to change 10.00g of ice to steam at 100 degrees C?

Dec 28, 2016

${H}_{2} C = O \left(g\right) + {O}_{2} \left(g\right) \rightarrow C {O}_{2} \left(g\right) + {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$

#### Explanation:

And you need to quote the following data:

$i .$ $\Delta {H}_{\text{rxn}}$

$i i .$ $\text{Specific heat of ice}$

$i i i .$ $\text{Latent heat of fusion of water}$

$i v .$ $\text{Specific heat of water}$

$v .$ $\text{Latent heat of vaporization of water}$

So there are 5 pieces of data that you have not supplied. In their absence we cannot help you.
