Question 7 Ten grammes of water at 20 C is converted into ice at -10 C at constant atmospheric pressure. Assuming the specific heat of liquid water to remain constant at 4.2 J/gK and that of ice to be half of this value, and taking the latent heat of fusion of ice at 0 C to be 335 J/g, calculate the total entropy change of the system.

Question 8 Calculate the entropy change of the universe as a result of the following processes: (a) A copper block of 600 g mass and with Cp of 150 J/K at 100 C is placed in a lake at 8 C. (b) The same block, at 8 C, is dropped from a height of 100 m into the lake. (c) Two such blocks, at 100 and 0 C, are joined together.

actually in the question it is given joule per kelvin not joule per kg kelvin

why not use integral form of entropy calculation to find the entropy change in lake?

river acts like a reservoir... temp will never change
