    I need the equation to use and the math explained step by step if some one can help

    I assume that '%00ml' refers to 500 mL?

    Try editing your post to clearly refer to the formulas you know or intend to use.

    Hint: At 0C, ice begins to melt. This heat is the heat of fusion. After melting, the material (now 40 g of water) is still at 0C and has a heat capacity that is different from that of ice.
