Problem 22PE

To help prevent frost damage, 4.00 kg of 0ºC water is sprayed onto a fruit tree.

(a) How much heat transfer occurs as the water freezes?

(b) How much would the temperature of the 200-kg tree decrease if this amount of heat transferred from the tree? Take the specific heat to be 3.35 kJ/kg⋅ºC , and assume that no phase change occurs.

Solution 22PE
