1. 1 kg of melting ice and 1 kg of boiling water are mixed: Which temperature will have the mixture when all ice is liquefied ?

I dont know if there is formula

The attempt solution: I dont know this question is really hard there are not enough information

Re: THermodynamics

I would start by assuming atmospheric pressure, also assuming the ice is at 0°C and boiling water is at 100°C.

Re: THermodynamics

From my perspective, I would think that you need more information to accurately answer this question. Such as the latent heat of fusion of ice for one.

Re: THermodynamics

I agree with Taxonfear... solid ice at 0 centigrade has to change into water at 0 centigrade
Then water at 0 centigrade has to be heated to the final temp. All of the energy to do this comes from water at 100 centigrade
