- Homework Statement
- The melting point of a solid is 90 C. What is the heat required to change 2.5 kg of this solid at 30 C to a liquid

The specific heat of the solid is (390 j/KG.C) and its heat fusion is (4000 J/KG)

- Relevant Equations
- Q=mC ΔT heat capacity

Q=mHf heat of fusion

Q1=2.5(390)(90-30) =58500

Q2=2.5(4000) = 10000

Qtotal = 58500+10000

Q=68500

=6.8x10^4

my teacher sent this as a homework but the options were

4.9x10^4 J

1x10^4 J

6.8x10^5 J

5.9x10^4 J

im confused is is this a typo or did i do something wrong
