I am having trouble figuring out how to solve this.

**DrBob222**, Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 11:49pmI can't help because I'm confused by the problem. How can you have ice at 15 C? You can't. You must have made a typo; I suspect it is -15 C.

Here is the general procedure.

For change of state (change of phase), heat needed is

q = mass x heat fusion (if melting/freezing) or heat of vaporization (if vaporizing/condensing) and if moving within a phase (the same state)

q = mass x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial).

Then total Q = sum of individual qs.
