A 152g sample of ice at -37 degrees Celsius is heated until it turns into liquid water at 0 degrees Celsius. Find the change in heat content of the system.

I'm really confused on how to solve this question knowing the fact that the state of the system is changing from ice to liquid.

  1. heat the ice to 0ºC
    ... specific heat of ice?

    melt the ice to water at 0ºC
    ... heat of fusion of ice?
