Problem: A beaker of negligible mass contains 0.700 kg of water at a temperature of 62.0°C. Mass m of ice at an initial temperature of 0°C is put into the water. After the system has reached thermal equilibrium, all of the ice has melted and the system is all liquid water at 28.0°C. What was the mass m of the ice that was added to the water? Note: c  water = 4186 J/kg and Lfusion = 334,000 J/kg for water.
