We’re being asked to calculate the amount of energy required to convert 70.6 g of ice at 0.00˚C to water at 75˚C.


There are three heats involved in this problem:


1. q1 which is the heat in melting 70.6 g ice at 0.0°C.

2. q2 which is the heat in raising the temperature of  70.6 g of water from 0.00˚C to 75˚C.


We need to solve for each heat individually then add them together to get the final answer.
