# Imagine the 10.0g of ice has an initial temperature of -5.0degreesC. Can someone calculate the energy needed to heat the ice, melt it, and heat the water to 54.5degreesC? (Cp of ice=2.108J/gdegreesC)

##### 1 Answer

Total Energy required is:

#### Explanation:

Latent Heat of Fusion of Ice:

Formula:

Specific Heat Capacity of Ice:

Specific Heat Capacity of Water:

Formula:

To calculate this, first we must find the energy required to raise the temperature of **ice** from

Now, we must find the Energy required to **convert** the solid ice into liquid water at its melting point:

Finally, we must find the Energy required to raise the temperature of **water** from

To calculate the total Energy needed, we need to **add** all the energy values up:

And there we have our answer.
