  • Physical science -

    (A) Multiply the specific heat of ice by the 100 g mass and 10 C (temperature rise).
    (B) Multiply the 100 g mass by the heat of fusion. The temperature remains 0 C while ot melts.
    (C) Multiply the specific heat of water by 100 g and 100 C.

    If you do not know the specific heats of ice and liquid water, nor the heat of fusion, this would be a very good time to look them up.

  • Physical science -

    does that mean
    A= 500 cal/g.
