To help prevent frost damage to a fruit tree, 4.00 kg of water at is sprayed onto the tree and allowed to freeze. The specific latent heat of fusion of water is 334 kJ/kg.
How much heat transfer occurs as the water freezes?
The tree has a mass of 200 kg and a specific heat capacity of . How much would the temperature of the tree have decreased if it had not been sprayed by water, assuming that no state changes occur in the matter of the tree as it cools?
An ice cube has a mass of kg. The ice cube is placed inside a perfectly insulated container that holds 0.400 kg of water at an initial temperature of . Find the final temperature inside the container. Use a value of for the specific heat capacity of water and 334 kJ/kg for the specific latent heat of fusion of ice.
