# Physics problem on specific heat capacity and latent heat?

question is: mass of ice = 0.5kg initial temp = 0C, the ice is brought into contact with a mass of gold at intial temp = 100C, after thermal equilibrium is reached, half the ice has melted, find the mass of gold
latent heat of fusion of water = 3.35x10^5 J/kg
Spec heat capacity of water = 4190J/kg/K

question is: mass of ice = 0.5kg initial temp = 0C, the ice is brought into contact with a mass of gold at intial temp = 100C, after thermal equilibrium is reached, half the ice has melted, find the mass of gold

latent heat of fusion of water = 3.35x10^5 J/kg

Spec heat capacity of water = 4190J/kg/K

spec heat cap of gold = 126J/kg/K

please give detailed solution

thanks
