To calculate the enthalpy change or heat energy of a phase change, use the formula q=m(heat of (fusion, vaporization, etc...)). Make sure to use the formula q=mc(delta T) to calculate the heat energy for the temperature changes in between phase changes. Add up all of the q values and you have your enthalpy change.
