An ice cube with a mass of 40.0 g melts in water originally at 25.0 degree C.
a. How much heat does the ice cube absorb from the water when it melts. Report the answer in calories, kilocalories, joules
b. Calculate the number of grams of water that can be cooled to 0 degreeC by the melting ice cube.
q = mass ice x heat fusion
mass ice x heat fusion + [mass water x specific heat water x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] = 0
