In the textbook, the question states that it takes 10.5 hours to reach 5C, but the solution manual uses 10 h. Is this a typo or am I missing something? I used these equations (4.184)(150 g)(5C - 0C)= 3135 J for 150 g and then I did (

You want to find how long it takes for ice to melt. The question says ice takes 10.5 h to reach 5 degrees Celsius and that the water at a liquid state at 0 degrees Celsius takes 0.5 h to reach 5 degrees Celsius. Therefore, the remaining 10.0 h must be from the ice melting. (10.5 - 0.5 = 10 h for the ice to melt).
