im reviewing for my final in a few days an although this is a basic question i cant work out the correct answer for some reason. and i know i started the other thread below this one but i figured this was a different topic so the heading should be different lol(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A heat transfer of 8.8 x 10^5 J is required to convert a block of ice at -13°C to water at 13°C. What was the mass of the block of ice?

2. Relevant equations

Q=mc(ice)(tf-ti) + mLf + mc(water)(tf-ti)

3. The attempt at a solution

i tried: 8.8x10^5= m(2220)(13) + m(333) + m(4190)(13)

i come out with the 10.52kg which is not correct.

can someone help pinpoint what i am doing something wrong? thanks!
