"Find the total energy lost by the contents of a Styrofoam picnic cooler when a 3.60 kg block of ice placed inside the cooler completely melts (at 0 Celsius). The ice had an initial temperature of -10.00 Celsius." (Answer is 1.27*10^3 kJ).

I was thinking of using q=mct, but I didn't get the answer. I might have done something wrong though...
