Determine the value of ∆H and ∆U for the reversible isothermal evaporation of 90.0 g of water at 100° C. Assume that water vapour behave as an ideal gas and heat of evaporation of water is 540 cal.

∆H = 90.0 x 540 =48600 cal

Volume of liquid is negligible as compared to volume of vapour.

∆H = ∆U + ${ pV }_{ vap }$

∆H = ∆U + nRT

= 48600 - 90/18 x 2 x 373(n = 90/18)

= 48600 - 3730 = 44870 cal
