Solution Summary

The solution calculates the final temperature of a mixture of steam and ice.

Solution Preview

Heat is absorbed by the ice and given up by steam
Let the final temperature of the mixture be t degrees celsius

1) Heat absorbed by ice:
mass of ice= 50 g= 0.05 Kg
specific latent heat of fusion of ice = 334 kJ.kg-1 334000 J.kg-1

Heat taken up for converting ice at 0ºC to water at 0ºC
= ...
