heres the problem :

The sepcific heat of lead is 31.0 calories per kilogram per Celsius degree. (a) Find the heat necessary to raise the temperature of 1.30 kg of lead from 23.0 degrees Celsius to its melting point, 327.3 C. (b) Find the heat necessary for the phase change from solid to liquid. The heat of fusion for lead is 24.5 x 10^3 joules per kilogram.

Any help is great.

Thanks in advanced
