Question

# Q 8) 250 g of water at 30 degree celsius is contained in a copper vessel of mass 50g.Calculate the mass of ice required to bring down the temperature of the vessel and its contents to 5 degeree celsius.Specific latent heat of fusion of ice 336*1000 J per kg. Specific heat capacity of copper =400 J per kg per K Specific heat Capacity of water =4200J per kg per K.

Solution

## Heat loss by copper vessel when temperature goes to 5° C =msdT =50 x 0.4 (30-5)=50 x 0.4 x 25 =500 j Heat loss by water when temperature goes to 5°C =msdT=250 x 4.2 x 25 =26250j Hence total heat loss=(500 +26250)=26750 j now , when ice gain heat and change its phase =mL =m×336 j and now ice convert in water , and increase temperature 5°C ie, dT = 5 so, heat gain by water=m x 4.2 x 5 total heat gain=m (336 + 21)=m x 357 we know , heat loss =heat gain 26750=m x 357 m=74.92 gm
