Does the amount of heat absorbed as 1 kg of saturated liquid water boils at 100°C have to be equal to the amount of heat released as 1 kg of saturated water vapor condenses at 100°C?

    Yes, the answer is yes. Absorbed energy during vaporization has to equal the energy released during condensation at the same T and P. If you could release/absorb more energy in either direction,then you would be creating or destroying energy,a violation of the first law of thermodynamics.

    Yes It equals....too keep it simple under same conditions of T&P the heat energy absorbed and released will be same.
