how-much-heat-is-needed-to-melt-12-51-kg-of-silver-that-is-initially-at-15-1-cc-the-melting-p-pa580

How much heat is needed to melt 12.51 kg of silver that is initially at 15.1 ∘C∘C? The melting point of silver is 961∘C∘C, the heat of fusion is 88 kJ/kgkJ/kg, the specific heat is 230 J/kg⋅C∘J/kg⋅C∘.

Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units.

Please help due soon

To calculate the amount of heat needed to melt of silver, we need to consider the following steps:

Calculate the heat required to raise the temperature of the silver from to the melting point

Calculate the heat required to melt the silver at its melting point.

Add the two values to get the total heat required.

Given below hope it helps
