# Homework Specific Heat Capacity Help watch

1. An ice cube of mass 0.008kg at 0 degrees Celsius was placed in water at 15 degrees Celsius in an insulated beaker. The mass of water in the beaker was 0.120kg. After the ice cube had melted, the water was stirred, and it’s temperature was found to have fallen to 9 degrees Celsius. The specific heat capacity of water is 4200J/kg degree Celsius.

a) calculate the energy transferred from the water
b) show that when the melted ice warmed from 0 degrees Celsius to 9 degrees Celsius, it gained 300 J of energy
c) use this data to calculate the specific latent heat of fusion of water
