    Heat Transfer and Calorimetry

    A 50 g Aluminum calorimeter contains 95 g of a mixture of water and ice at 0 degree Celsius. When 100 g of Aluminum, which has been heated in a steam jacket to 100 degree Celsius, is dropped into the mixture, the temperature rises to 5 degree Celsius. Find the mass of ice originally present in the mixture if the specific heat capacity of aluminum is 0.22 cal/g*C

    How about you show your work. If you are completely lost on how to begin this problem, and thus have no work to show, then you should look up the heat/temperature change equations and the heat/phase change equations. Also remember the conservation of energy laws - heat gained equals heat lossed.
