    can someone help me do both parts.
    i used the specific heat capacity formula for part one but that didn't give me the right answer.

    for part 2 i dont know how to start it

    For part i you need to calculate the energy thermal required to increase the temperature of the ice from -15 degrees using Q=mc detla theta. But also it changes state so you have to add the energy required for ice to change into water which is Q=ml where l is the specific latent heat of fusion of ice

    Is the answer 16.7 degrees

    mark scheme says 16 degrees how did you do it?

    where did you get the 200 from?
    mark scheme says this :
    dont understand the second part where they made the 2 equations equal.

    I think for part 2 you would use:

    mcΔθ of the water = the energy value you just calculated

    where Δθ would be (200 - θ)

    It is using conservation of energy.

    Energy lost by the warm water is used to heat up the ice to the equilibrium temperature T.

    Energy lost by the warm water = Energy gained by ice to increase the temperature from −15°C to 0°C + Energy gained by the ice to change to water + Energy gained by the water (change from ice) at 0°C to increase the temperature to the equilibrium temperature T

    I think
    Energy gained by ice to increase the temperature from −15°C to 0°C + Energy gained by the ice to change to water = 8676

    For some reason I can't upload a picture

    But basically you get 2 simulataneous equations. One for energy lost by the water and one for the energy gained by the ice. The energy lost is a negative though.

    Water: -Q=mc(T-28) where m is mass of the water and c is the heat capacity of water
    Ice: Q=ml + mc(T+15) where m is the mass of the ice and c is the heat capacity of water
    Then just find T
