Given the Following: heat of fusion of ice = 80.0 cal/g; specific heat of ice = 0.480 cal/g; and specific heat of water = 1.00 cal/g. Calculate the amount of heat required to melt 30.0 g of ice at 0 degrees celsius?
We wish to assess the enthalpy change for the physical reaction......
Note that BOTH the ice and water have a specified temperature of
And for the given quantity, this
By the same token, we would report the enthalpy change of the reverse reaction......
