Question

The special thermal properties of water affect the hydrologic cycle and global warming. For instance, the presence of the winter polar ice cap slows the springtime heating of the Arctic Ocean. Here's an experiment to illustrate this:

Beaker A contains 1 gram of water at 0oC. Beaker B contains 1 gram of ice at 0oC. Each beaker is heated by a little candle that adds 1 calorie of heat per second.

After 90 seconds what is the temperature of beaker A? Of beaker B?

Use the terms heat capacity and latent heat of fusion to explain this.

Explain in detail how you arrived at your answer and give the solution.
