The Brainliest Answer!

.

Whereas "Latent-Heat" is the amount of heat required to change the phase of a unit mass of substance.

.

Now for the phase change from solid-ice to liquid-water, heat required is

(1 gm)(80 cal/gm) = 80 cal.

To raise the temperature of water from 0 to 100 (celsius), heat required is

(1 gm)(1 cal/gm/K)(100 K) = 100 cal.

Again for the phase change from liquid-water to gaseous-steam, heat required isĀ

(1 gm)(540 cal/gm) = 540 cal.

Summing up the entire thing you get, total heat required = 720 cal = 0.72 kcal.
