QUESTION

How much energy is required to melt a 20.0 lb bag of ice ar 0 C? a pond of ice is equivalent to 0.4536 kg. The delta Hfusion of ice is + 6.009 KJ/mol.

3030kJ

Your method is 100% correct, but you made a small calculation error in converting the lb to g, by a factor of 10, resulting in you final answer being out by a factor of 10.

The amount of energy required to melt 1kg of ice at 0^@C is equal to the specific latent heat of fusion for ice and has value L_f=334kJ//kg.

So for 20xx0.4536=9.072kg, we get that energy required to melt it is W=mL_f=9.072kgxx334000J//kg

=3.03MJ

=3030kJ
