(A) Multiply the specific heat of ice by the 100 g mass and 10 C (temperature rise).

(B) Multiply the 100 g mass by the heat of fusion. The temperature remains 0 C while ot melts.

(C) Multiply the specific heat of water by 100 g and 100 C.

If you do not know the specific heats of ice and liquid water, nor the heat of fusion, this would be a very good time to look them up.

does that mean

A= 500 cal/g.

B=8,000

C=10,000
