For water at $25^\circ C$, $dp_s/dT_s = 0.189 \: kPa/K$ ($p_s$ is the saturation pressure in $kPa$ and $T_s$ is the saturation temperature in $K$) and the specific volume of dry saturated vapour is $43.38 \: m^3/kg$. Assume that the specific volume ... of vapour. Using the Clausius-Clapeyron equation, an estimate of the enthalpy of evaporation of water at $25^\circ C$ (in $kJ / kg$) is __________
