Physics-Latent Heat of Fusion problem?

The Latent Heat of Fusion for water (ice) is 80 cal/gºC. How much heat energy would be needed to raise the temperature of 30 g of ice (at 0ºC) to water at 25ºC?

Update:

a. 25 cal

b. 105 cal

c. 750 cal

d. 3150 cal

    first,ice will take heat to transform to water from its ice state.but the temperature will be immutable because of the latent heat.

    so H1=30 x 80 cal

    then it will raise its temperature to 25ºC

    so H2=30 X 1 X {0-(-25)}cal

    TOTAL HEAT ENERGY=H1+H2=2400=750=3150 cal

    You need to consider it in three steps. 1) The heat needed to warm the ice from -10 C to 0 C. 2) The heat needed to melt the ice. 3) The heat needed to warm the water from 0 C to 90 C. To do steps 1 and 3 you will need the specific heat capacity of ice and liquid water respectively.
