Best Answer

You need about 290.3 kj of heat to melt one quart of ice at 0oC.

Water's latent heat of fusion is 333.7 kj/kg.

1 quart ≈ 0.946 lt. Density of ice is 0.920 kg/lt. So mass of ice (considering the quart of ice is one solid piece, not broken ice) is 0.946(0.920) kg ≈ 0.870 kg.

Heat required to melt the ice: 0.870 kg (333.7 kj/kg) ≈ 290.3 kj.

Is water liquid at 100degree Celsius?

100 degrees Celsius is 212 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature at which pure water boils. Depending on the volume of water, 100 C is where it transitions from liquid to vapor state. With one drop of water, this would happen almost instantly, with one quart of water, it would take some time.

How many calories to raise 1 quart of water 38 degrees?

A quart of water is 946.35 cubic centimeters and since density of water is 1 gram per cubic centimeter the weight of a quart of water is 946.35 grams. Heat required = (mass) x (specific heat of substance) x (temperature differential) In our case it would be 946.35 x 1 x 38(assumed degrees centigrade) = 35961.3 cals

What is the weight of one gallon of water at 25 degrees celsius in pounds?

Volume and weight are different kinds of things, and one does not convert into the other. That is because different fluids have different density. A gallon of water does not weigh the same as a gallon of gasoline.
