Step 1

Given information:

Mass of ice = 10 kg

Initial temperature = -20 °C

Final temperature = 70 °C

Cp,ice = + 37.1 J/mole.°C

Cp,water = + 75.3 J/mole.°C

ΔHfus, water = + 6.01 kJ/mole

ΔHcombustion, methane = -802 kJ/mole

Step 2

The amount of heat required to raise the temperature by 1°C is known as heat capacity. The heat capacity at constant pressure is represented by Cp.

Step 3

The amount of heat released or absorbed can be expressed in terms of heat capacity and temperature chan... help_outlineImage Transcriptioncloseice n.Cp.AT 10kg 18.01528g/mole -x37.1 J/mole. Cx[70-(-20)] °C 10000g x37.1 J/mole. C70-(-20)] °C 18.01528g/mole = 1853426.6 J = 1853.42 kJ fullscreen
