# How much energy is required to melt 10.0g of ice at its melting point? (Hf=334 J/g)

Mar 2, 2018

$3340 J$ of energy is required to melt ice at its melting point

#### Explanation:

The formula for finding the energy required to melt any substance is $m L$, where $m$ is the mass of that substance and $L$ is the Latent Heat of Fusion of the pure form of that substance.

Now, we have mass and Latent Heat of Fusion for Ice. All we have to do is multiply those quantities to get the answer:

$m L =$

$10 g \cdot 334 \frac{J}{g}$

$g$ and $g$ cancel out.

$10 \cdot 334 J$

$= 3340 J$

And there we have our answer.
