Homework Help: A Question about Heat

  1. Jun 6, 2005 #1
    Excuse me, I have a question about heat.

    1kg of 0 degree celsius ice is mixed with 1kg of 100 degree celsius vapour, what is the final temperature? What is the state of the mixture?
    [specific latent heat of fusion=334000J/kg
    specific latent heat of vapourization=2260000J/kg
    specific heat capacity of water=4200J/kg]
    Use the information above if necessary, you can also use the information which is not provided above(eg. specific heat capacity of ice, specific heat capacity of vapour etc.)

    Please consider the following equation:

    mass of water * c of water * change of temperature of water = mass of water * c of water * change of temperature of water + mass of ice * specific latent heat of fusion
