A 4.00kg block of ice is removed from a freezer where its temperature was maintained at -20C. Find the heat that the ice must absorb in order to warm up to its melting point, melt, and then the water warms up to 10.0 degrees. The specific heat capacity of ice = 2000J/kg-degrees C, the specific heat of water is 4180 J/kg-degrees C and the latent heat of fusion for ice is 335000 J/kg.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't even know where to start.

Something with this: Q = Cm(delta T)

DeltaT = 30 degrees C
