## Homework Statement

Derive the Following Equations:

c = [(m_w*c_w + m_c*c_al) (T_e - T_i)] / m_s*(T_s - T_e)

and

L = (m_w*c_w + m_c*c_al) * (T_i - T_e) - m_I*c_w * [(T_e- T_m)/m_I]

## Homework Equations

T_i - initial temp of water and calorimeter

T_m - melting temp of ice

T_e - equilibrium temp of system

m_w- mass of water

m_c - mass of calorimeter

m_I - mass of ice

c_w - specific heat of water

c_al - specifical heat of aluminum

L - unknown heat of fusion

## The Attempt at a Solution

...trying to receive help from my teacher's assistant, but not being able to do so :[

Any attempts at either equations, wrong or right, will be fully appreciated.
