Heat of fusion of ice = 334 J/g
Specific heat of water = 4.186 J/g*˚C

1st determine the amount of heat energy required to melt all the ice.
The water’s temperature will decrease as the ice melts.
Energy absorbed by ice = mass * Heat of fusion = 90 * 334 = 30,060 Joules

2nd determine the temperature of the water, after releasing the heat energy.

Energy released by water = Mass * Specific heat * ∆T
Energy released by water = 670 * 4.18 * ∆T

670 * 4.186 * ∆T = 90 * 334
∆T = 10.7˚
The water’s temperature decreased 10.7˚ as all the ice melted. Final temperature of water = 24-10.7 = 13.3˚
Now you have 665 grams of water at 16.4˚C and 80 grams of water at 0˚

3rd determine the final temperature of the water.
90 * 4.186 * (Tf – 0) = 670 * 4.186 * (13.3 – Tf)
Divide both sides by 4.186
90 * Tf = 670 * (13.3 – Tf)
760 * Tf = 8911
Tf = 11.7˚
