the largest of the Great Lakes, Lake Superior contains 1.2*10^16kg of fresh water, which has a specific capacity of 4186J/kg*C and a latent heat of fusion of 3.33*10^5J/kg.

a.) If Lake Superior were still liquid at 0C, how much energy would need to be removed from the lake for it to become completely frozen?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Can someone just give me a hint or give me the equation to use because i have no clue what to do?
