(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I need some help!!

i have two things i'm stuck on and i really can't get my head around them.

i have done a pendulum experiment using a 1m rule hung over a point using an inverted v shaped piece of string, i have calculated the period and have been given this equation to relate period T to perpendicular height h,

T^2.h=4pi^2/g(h^2 + k^2)

k is a constant and g is acceleration of free fall.

i need to draw a suitable graph to find g and k

The other question is,

ice of temp -10 celsius is dropped into a glass of water at temp 20 cesius, what is the temperature eventually?

i have the respective heat capacities and the latent heat of ice, i also know i have to use Q=mc delta t from -10 to 0. i think i have to use Q=ml after that but i don't know how they relate and if i have to goback to the original equation after 0 celsius?

please please help i just don't seem to be getting anywhere, thanks, Dan.
