Hi,

I just want to double check if the following is valid. However, I would just like to give you the context of my questions. Basically, I am passing a wire through ice, then I'm trying to figure out how an increase in mass (therefore force) affects the velocity at which the wire goes through.

First, here are the two formulas that I'm using:

1) Q = mL, where L is the latent heat of fusion of water.

2) Part of the Clausius-Clapeyron relation where:

Then, I combined the two together by subbing in for L, so that:

Then, energy = 1/2 mv^2, therefore, we get:

Is the above remotely correct? Does anyone have any ideas on how I can combine the equations?

Thanks in advance
