Question #1645

How much ice at -10C must be added to 0.50 Kg of water at 20 C if it all to melt leaving only water at 0 C?

Expert's answer

Let's construct heat ballance equation:

C

where C

21.08m + 333.55 m = 41870

C

_{ice}*m*(T_{1}-T_{0}) + C_{fnice}* m = C_{water}*m_{water}*(T_{2}-T_{0})where C

_{ice}is a specific heat of ice, 2.108 J/gK , C_{water}is a specific heat of water of 4.187 J/gK, C_{fnice}- the heat of ice fusion 333.55 J/g, T_{0}= 0C (melting point of ice), T_{1}= -10C, T_{2}= 20C, m_{water}= 0.5kg=500g.21.08m + 333.55 m = 41870

**m = 118.1 g = 0.118 kg of ice.**Need a fast expert's response?
