Simple calorimetry problem, melting of water

  • Thread starter qpham26
  • Start date
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Calculate the final temperature (once the ice has melted) of a mixture made up initially of 75.0 mL liquid water at 29 degrees celsius and 7.0 g ice at 0.0 degrees celsius.

2. Relevant equations
c: heat capacity of water
miceΔHf + micec(Tf-0°C) = -mwaterc(Tf - 29°C)

3. The attempt at a solution
So basically I will do some algebra to solve for Tf

Can someone help me confirm the set up above?

Thanks very much.
