1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Given that ice has a specific heat that is half of that of water, does it take more thermal energy to raise the temperature of 5 grams of water or 5 grams of ice by 6 degrees Celsius? 2. Relevant equations Q=mc delta t 3. The attempt at a solution So I think it takes more energy to raise the temperature of water. Am I right? The answer given is ice, could that just be a mistake?
