Calculating final temperature

Postby Grace Han 2K » Mon Feb 12, 2018 5:22 pm

In order to make iced-tea, a 50.0g ice cube at 0.00C is added to 250 ml of tea at 20.0C. What is final temp of the iced tea once it has reached thermal equilibrium. Assume that no heat is transferred to or from the surroundings. The density of water and iced tea is 1.00g/mL over the range of 0-20 C.


n deltaH(fus) + C(water)m (Tf-Ti) = - C(water)m (Tf-Ti)

deltaH(fus) of water is 6.01kJ/mol

6.01kJ/mol + (50g)(4.184J/gC)(Tf-0C)= -250g((4.184J/gC)(Tf-20C)

Is this the correct set-up for this problem?

Don't forget to multiply your deltaHfus of ice by the amount of moles of ice you have (50/18). Other than that, looks good!
