Heat of Vaporization

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Heat of vaporization, abbreviated as \(H_v\), is the amount of heat needed to be consumed to vaporize a specific amount of liquid at a constant temperature.

 

Heat of vaporization Formula

\(\large{ H_v  =  \frac{ q }{ m }  }\)    

Where:

\(\large{ H_v }\) = heat of vaporization

\(\large{ q }\) = heat

\(\large{ m }\) = mass of substance
