I have a question about droping ice into water and working out the final temp.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ice is -10 and water is 20 degrees c, I know that from -10 to 0 I can use,

Q = m.c.delta theta

but does this give me the final answer or do i need to use, Q = m.l, after 0.

I think this because this equation is used when no change in temp occurs, also after 0 do i go back to original equation?

thanks, Dan
