(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. 0.500kg of ice at -5.00°C is put into a vessel containing 1.80kg of water at 17.00°C and mixed together, the result being a mixture of ice and water at 0.00°C. 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.
