Why don't we factor in the delta H of fusion into our calculation of the final temperature of water in these problems? Wouldn't some heat energy be lost in melting the ice cube or am I just overthinking the problem?
You do factor in the heat of fusion in these questions. You need to account for the heat required to melt the ice and then to raise the liquid water to the final temperature. Hopefully this helps.
