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

    How much ice must melt at 0 deg. C to gain 6 g of mass?

    2. Relevant equations
    I don't know any Relevant equations to this problem.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have tried leaving mass as a variable and using Latent Heat Energys too. I have no idea what to set equal to what because i don't have equations to work with this problem.

    I think the problem has to do with the E=mc^2 formula. The energy is the energy absorbed from the surroundings in the process of melting.
