1. A 10-kg block of ice has a temperature of -10°C. The pressure is one atmosphere. The block absorbs 4.12E6J of heat. What is the final temperature of the liquid water?

2. Q = mL and Q = cm/\T

3. I tried doing Q = cmT and plugging in the values above to get 88.4 degrees as the final temperature, and using 4186J/(kgCdegree) for c, but it's wrong. I am confused on these types of problems.
