# Finding the Volume of Methane at the Given Conditions

Long title, I know! :tongue:

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The heat of combustion of methane ($\text{CH}_4$) is $890.4 \ \text{kJ/mol}$ and the heat of capacity of $\text{H}_2\text{O}$ is $75.2 \ \text{J}/\text{mol}\cdot\text{K}$ and that the heat capacity of $\text{H}_2\text{O}$ is $37.7 \ \text{J}/\text{mol}\cdot\text{K}$, calculate the heat of fusion of water at $-10 \ { }^{\circ}\text{C}$.

2. Relevant equations

I really don't know. I'm truly confused.

3. The attempt at a solution

From the given information, I was thinking of finding the mass of methane, but then I would need the density of methane, which was never mentioned in my textbook. So I highly doubt my thoughts are even on the right track.

Any start/hint to a solution would be highly helpful and appreciated!

This problem should be restated. As it is stated, it does not make sense. You have stated any conditions.

Ah. Now I don't feel so guilty for not getting it. It was a challenge problem in my textbook, so I didn't make it. Sorry about that and thanks! End of thread.
