I'm still not sure how to find the melting of the ice, do i need to use latent heat constant?
ahhh so add the two values together and then multiply by the area*the density?
1.if i raise the temp of the ice to the melting pt. it would need to be at its boiling pt 100 degrees celcius. heat rises
2. now must melt the ice at 0 degrees celcius
I'm sorry I really don't know what I'm doing just learned this for the first time today along with four other physics chapter...
Homework Statement
A woman finds the front windshield of her car covered with ice at -12.8°C. The ice has a thickness of 4.60 10-4 m, and the windshield has an area of 1.25 m2. The density of ice is 917 kg/m3. How much heat is required to melt the ice?
Homework Equations
Q=mL or change...
first i would take the celcius and subtract 32 degrees since its above the farenheight freezing pt. and then convert to farenheight by multiplying by (9/5)....right....and in the other part i would add 32 degrees since its below the zero pt??
