Homework Help: Chemistry - Heat of Fusion

Posted by M and V on Tuesday, April 24, 2007 at 3:19pm.

When water is frozen into ice cubes in the freezer, where does the released heat go?

I think it just goes into the air in the freezer, nowhere special. Because won't the heat become cold air then?

That's right. The heat just adds to the heat load that the freezer/refrigerator is pulling and eventually the heat is transferred to the outside, meaning into the kitchen/room.
