  1. Look up the heat of fusion of ethanol.

    Heat in water freezing= masswater*Hfwater

    Heat in alchol freezing=massalcohol*Hfalc

    set the equal, and solve for mass of alcohol.

  3. (m_(water ) 〖Lf〗_water)/〖Lf〗_alcohol =m_alcohol
    (3.0×(33.5×〖10〗^4 ))/((10.8×〖10〗^4 ) )=m_alcohol=9.3kg

    Maryo you are right! :)
