Latent heat question:

Your car's windshield is covered with a .58 cm thick layer of ice. The ice has an area of 1.6m^2. If the temperature of the ice is -2C, how much heat is required to melt all the ice?

  • Physics - ,

    heatrequired=massice*specificheatice*(0-(-2))+ massice*latentheat

    ok, massice= densityice*volumeice. I would use the density of ice about .932g/cm^2, Volume ice= .58cm*1.6m^2*10^4cm^2/m^2

    and you have to look up the specific heat of ice, it is about half that of water, as I recall. Look it up.
