Hey. I wasnt sure where to post this, since it isnt an actual question i need to complete for school, but it relates to it. When my year 11 physics class was solving the final temperature of an ice/steam mixture, my teacher kept talking about how energy is transferred too AND from the ice. Now, originally, i thought energy was transferred from a hotter substance to a colder substance, until their temperatures were equal. So in the ice/steam case, i would have thought that energy was only transferred from the steam to the ice. I tried getting him to explain the transfer of energy from the ice, but he just couldnt give me a straigh forward answer. He even referred to it as 'cold energy' at one stage. If anyone could bring shed some light on this topic, id greatly appreciate it. Thanks alot, Dan.
