How much energy is necessary to completely melt an ice cube of mass 360.6grams that is initially at a temp of -25.2 degrees celsius.

2. Relevant equations

im thinkin i should use specific heat equation? is that right?

c=Q/m(change of temp)

2090=Q/.36069(25.2)

3. The attempt at a solution

Q= 18992

i kno its wrong but im not sure what approach i need to take in finding the correct answer.

the correct answer is 1.40x10^5
