  1. You need two equations.
    1. Within a phase
    q = mass x specific heat x (Tfinal-Tinitial). For example, for warming from zero C to 28 C you will have
    q = mass x specific heat x (28-0) = ?

    2. At the phase change. For example, at the melting point you have
    q = mass x heat fusion

    So you will have q from -24 to zero, at zero, and from zero to 28. Then add each for the total.
