Unformatted text preview: other in order to describe what will happen when the two substances are mixed, the resulting equation is w w w n n T c m L m = . All of the variables except for the latent heat can be found by experimentally finding the masses of the nitrogen and water and the initial and final temperatures of the water. The results from doing so can be plugged into the combined equation to find the latent heat of vaporization, the average of which was 202236.75 J/kg. Data: See attached sheet. Discussion: The average value was very close to the accepted value of 199200 J/kg, in fact only 1.52% off, so our results were very good....
