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

An ice-water mixture has a mass of 180g and is contained in a 100g aluminum calorimeter When 35g of steam at 100 degree Celsius is condensed in the water, the temperature rises to 50 degree Celsius. How much ice was in the container initially?

The heat capacity of water is 4.2 x 10^3

The heat capacity of ice is 2.1 x 10^3

The latent heat of vaporization is 2.3 x10^6

2. Relevant equations

Q =mc delta t

Q = mLv

3. The attempt at a solution

I didnt really have an attempt because i didnt know where to start, all i did was find the Q =mLv
