How much energy is evolved as heat when 1.0 L of water at 0 °C solidifies to ice? (The heat of fusion of water is 333 J/g.)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Energy evolved when a definite volume of water solidifies to ice has to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Heat energy required to raise the temperature of 1g of substance by 1k.Energy gained or lost can be calculated using the below equation.

q=C×m×ΔT

Where,

q= energy gained or lost for a given mass of substance (m),

C =specific heat capacity

ΔT= change in temperature

Explanation

Given heat of fusion of water=333J/g

Volume of water =1g/L

To fall the temperature of water from 1000C to 00C

q=4
