An 850 gram chunk of ice at 0 degrees Celsius is dropped into a container holding 1.7 kg of water at an initial temperature of 35 degrees Celsius. Due to the presence of the ice, the temperature of the water eventually drops to 0 degrees Celsius. Show a mathematical solution to answer this question:
Does the 850 gram chunk of ice completely melt?
Formulas: Q= mHf Q=mHv Q= m∆TCp
The specific heat of liquid is 4.18J/gᵒC
The specific heat of solid water (ice) is 2.11J/gᵒC
The heat energy released during melting is 334J/g
