Homework Help: Simple calorimetry problem, melting of water

  1. Nov 17, 2012 #1
    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.
