Amount of heat required to melt the ice = mc?? +ml
Specific heat capacity of ice, c = 2100J/kg K
specific latent heat of fusion of ice = 336 000J/kg
Volume of ice = \(\displaystyle{4.7}\times{10}^{{-{4}}}\times{1.25}={5.875}\times{10}^{{-{4}}}{m}^{{{3}}}\)
mass of ice = density * volume = \(\displaystyle{5.875}\times{10}^{{-{4}}}\times{917}={0.5387}{k}{g}\)
Amount of heat required \(\displaystyle={0.5387}\times{2100}\times{\left({10.6}-{0}\right)}+{0.5387}\times{336}{000}={193000}{J}\)

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use \(\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\) for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.

Assume that a 1.00-kg ball is thrown solely by the action of the forearm, which rotates about the elbow joint under the action of the triceps muscle. The ball is accelerated uniformly from rest to 10.0 m/s in 0.350 s, at which point it is released. Calculate (a) the angular acceleration of the arm, and (b) the force required of the triceps muscle. Assume that the forearm has a mass of 3.70 kg and rotates like a uniform rod about an axis at its end.
