AP PHYSICS ~ Thermal Properties ~ A heat transfer of

  1. Jan 14, 2013 #1
    A heat transfer of 9.5 x 10^5 J is required to convert a block if ice at -15°C to water at 15°C. What is the mass of the block of ice?

    So do I have to use the equation; Q= mcΔT ? and Q= mL ? And if so how do I use it?
