  1. You use those numbers but not that way.
    mass ice x specific heat ice x (Tfinal-Tinitial).
    60 g x 0.5 cal/g x (1) = ??

    Why does the temperature remain constant around 0 degrees C and 100 degrees C? For what? For water when it is freezing or boiling? Or do you have another question in mind? Sorry, it's for water when it is freezing or boiling.
