calculate the amount of heat energy required to melt a 1kg iron ingot initially at 20 ¡ãC? (heat of fusion for Fe is 33.0 J/g

  • physics -

    You also need specific heat of iron and melting point
    Watch your units, grams or kg , Joules or calories

    to get up to Tmelt
    heat = 1000 g * specific heat iron in Joules/gram deg C *(Tm-20)
    to melt
    heat = 1000g * 33 J/g
