So i did a lab were we melt an ice cube in water. So i have to find the heat of fusion for the ice cube. But i am not sure how to do that.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What i was thinking of doing is finding the energy released by temperature of the ice cube increasing, then make that value of q, equal to m*hf, when it is melting. So:

Q = m * hf

Q/ m = hf

would this be correct? if you want my data it is:

mass of ice cube = 22.82 g

temperature = -7 degrees celcius

and for specific heat capacity i used 2.10 joules/ gram * degrees celcius

i know the theoretical value is 333, but my teacher is saying that our value of hf needs to be different.
