Calculate the temperature change in the water upon complete melting of the ice. Hint: Determine how much heat is absorbed by the melting ice and then use q =mC*Delta T to calculate the temperature change of the 314 g of water.

under the following conditions:
A 14.7 g ice cube is placed into 314 g of water.

can someone help me?? im completely lost. or can someone help me start the problem? thanks

    Follow the hint.
    How much heat is required to melt the ice? That will be 14.7 g x heat fusion = ??. That will melt the ice and leave it at zero.
    But you failed to provide the temperature of the 314 g H2O so that's all the help I can offer.

    actually that's the exact problem. they don't have a starting tempereature or anything. that's why i was lost

    OK. I didn't read the problem very well. It asks for the temperature CHANGE so water changes by
    mass x specific heat x delta T.
    And it's the delta T you want to find.
