Calculate that final masses of ice and water, taking the water equivalent of the vessel as 0.148kg, the specific heat of ice as 2.04kJ/kg*K, and the latent heat of fusion of ice as 335kJ/kg

2. Q = mcΔT and Q = mLf

3. I started by finding Q = mLf of the ice. Q = (0.500kg)*(335kJ/kg*K) = 167.5kJ However I wasn't sure exactly sure where to go from here. I know that the mass of the vessel has to be added into the mass of ice at come point, but I'm really unsure of where to go from here.
