What mass of ice, at 0.00 C can be converted to steam, at 100 degrees C, if it absorbs 1.00 x 10 (to the 6th power) Jules of heat energy? How do you find the mass of ice?
[mass ice x heat fusion] + [mass ice x specific heat water x (Tfinal-Tinitial)+ [mass ice x heat vaporization] = 1E6 J.
Solve for mass ice.
Tfinal = 100 C
Tinitial = 0 C
I made a VERY quick estimate and arrived at about 330 grams if I didn't make an error. That's an approximation.
