as the topic asks
but, if i wanna know the energy of the 0 Centigrade melt into 0 Centigrade water, how to calculate it?
i mean i don't know how to use the equation Q=c*m*t, 'cause the specific heat of water and that of ice are different

The equation q=msd(theta) would give zero anyway because d(theta) is zero, it is not to be used.
There's a fixed quantity, the latent heat, which is taken as 80cal/g or 334J/g for fusion of ice
