Years ago, a block of ice with a mass of about 22kg was used daily in a home icebox. The temperature of the ice was 0.0 degrees Celsius when delivered.
As it melted, how much heat did a block of ice that size absorb? The latent heat of fusion of water is 3.34 x 10 ^ 5 J/kg.
Answer in units of J.

  • physics -

    heat lost by ice=MLf
    =22*3.34*10^5 J
    =7348000 J

    since heat gained =heat lost
    7348000 joules of heat energy is absorbed by the ice box.
