A 1.2 kg block of ice is initially at a temperature of -5°C.
(a) If 5.8 multiplied by 105 J of heat are added to the ice, what is the final temperature of the system?
(b) Suppose the amount of heat added to the ice block is increased by a factor of 3.0. By what factor must the mass of the ice be increased if the system is to have the same final temperature?
multiplied by

    You must do the (a) part in stages.
    q1 = heat required to move the ice from a T of -5 to zero.
    mass x specific heat ice x (Tfinal-Tinitial). You have mass, look up specific heat ice and delta T = 5.
    q2 = heat to melt the ice.
    q2 = mass x heat fusion.
    You have mass. Look up heat of fusion.
    Now q1 + q2 have been used. Subtract from the 5.8E5 J to determine the amount of heat remaining (if any remains--perhaps not all of the ice will melt) to raise the T of water from zero to unknown T.
    q = massH2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial) and solve for Tfinal. Tinitial is zero. Post your work if you need further assistance.

    Q1= 1.2 x 2.05 x 5 = 12.3

    q2= 1.2 x 333 = 399.6

    q1 + q2 = 411.9

    580000 - 411.9 = 579588.1

    what did i do wrong?
