Hot water is mixed with an amount of ice having an equal mass to that of the water and an initial temperature of 0 °C. What should the initial temperature of the hot water be to achieve a final water temperature of 5 °C with all the ice melted? The specific heat capacity of water is 4.2 kJ/(kg K) and the specific latent heat of fusion for ice is 334 kJ/kg. Assume that no heat is lost to the surroundings.

    formula.... M*C(INITIAL TEMPERATURE-FINALTEMP)=M *C (FINALTEMP - INITIAL TEMP) where m=mass c=specific heat capacity and t=temperature
