(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

10g of ice at 0 degrees Celcius is combined with 2 g of steam at 100 degrees Celcius. Find the final temperature of the resulting water.

2. Relevant equations

mc(Tf- Ti)

m(Lf) or m (Li)

3. The attempt at a solution

ΔQice=mLice+mcwaterTf

ΔQsteam=mLsteam+mcsteamTf-100 degrees celcius

I set this equations to 0 and solve for Tf and i get this

Tf=mCsTi+mLv-mLf/mCw+mCs and i get 93.9 degrees celcius and that is not the answer

the answer is 40.4 degrees celcius. help?
