Question #42234

A 0.50 kg lump of ice at -18 ºC is dropped into a well-insulated beaker with 1.0 kg of water at 42

ºC in it. Calculate what the beaker contains once thermal equilibrium has been reached?

(The specific heat capacities for ice and water are 2220 J kg-1 K-1 and 4190 J kg-1 K-1 respectively. The latent heat of fusion for water is 333 x 103

J kg-1)
