Calculate the final temperature when a 16.2 gram sample of ice at 0oC is placed into a styrofoam cup containing 128 grams of water at 79.0 oC. Assume that there is no loss or gain of heat from the surroundings.

Heat of fusion of ice = 333 Jg-1
Specific heat of water = 4.184 JK-1g-1

Final temperature = oC

Calculate the entropy change that occurs during this process.

Entropy change = JK-1

  • Chem -

    heat to melt ice + heat to raise T of melted ice to final T + heat lost by water initially at 79 C.

    [mass ice x heat fusion] + [mass melted ice x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] + [mass warm water x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] = 0
    Solve for Tfinal.
