1. q1 = heat required to move T from 25 to melting point of Pb. You will need to look up the melting point value.
q1 = mass Pb x specific heat Pb x (Tfinal-Tinitial).

q2 = heat to melt solid lead at the melting pont to liquid at the melting point.
q2 = mass Pb x heat fusion.

Total q = q1 + q2

Help me understand this please You have a 2.00 kg block of lead. Lead melts at 327.5°C. CPb = 130.0 , and Hf for lead is 2.04 × 10^4 J/kg. Say you start at room temperature (25.0°C). How much heat must you transfer to melt
