10.4 kJ/mol

Work Step by Step

The amount of heat required to vaporize one mole of liquid is defined as the heat of vaporization. Heat of vaporization is represented by dH vap. Given mass of sweat is 4.25g. dH vap of sweat at room temperature is 44 kJ./mol We know: 18g = 1mol 1 g= 1/18 mol So, 4.25g contains 0.23611 mol For 1 mol of sweat dH is 44 kJ/mol For 0.23611mol dH is= 0.23611x 44 kJ/mol= 10.4 kJ/mol
