Here is a new problem that i just tried..

Melting ice in your mouth requires a lot of heat energy, this is why it cools you down. How many calories will your body burn if you melt 6.0 grams of -25.0oC ice in your mouth to body temperature of 37.0oC?

Here is my stab at it....

(1.0 cal/g)(6.0g)(37oC - 0oC) = 2220 cal.
(80 cal/g)(6.0g) = 480
(.5 cal/g)(6.0g)(0oC - -25oC) = 75 cal
Total = 2775 calories needed

The wording of this problem threw me off a bit so i didn't know if it was an exothermic or endothermic process.  i think "this is why it cools you down" gives it away though, yes?  I think i did it as exothermic.

Dear reezyfbaby;

How much is 1 * 6 * 37?

And think also about that you have to spend the heat, so the process is consuming heat.

Good Luck!

oh my bad,  you are right it should be 222 not 2220, i must have hit some bad keys on my calculator.

was the problem correct though?

and isn't it exothermic because the ice is taking energy (heat) from the mouth?

Alright i think this is the last problem i have....


A serving of Doritos contains 160.0 Kilo calories (big C's). Your mouth is at body temperature 38.0oC.  What mass of -25.00oC ice do you have to eat to burn all the calories in one serving of Doritos.


Do i have to convert the 160.0 Kilo calories into regular calories.  160.0 Kilo calories is 160000 calories.

so far i have..

160000 calories = (.5 cal/g)(25.0oC)(M)+(80 cal/g)(M)

for this problem i used M as a place holder for mass.

here is my second try...

160000 calories = (.5 cal/g)(25.0oC)(M)+(80 cal/g)(M) + (1.0 cal/g)(M)(38.0oC - 0oC) = 103.5 g of ice required?

Dear reezyfbaby;

The values in the equation are correct, but I get more than 1.035 kg Ice.
Please calculate once more.

Good Luck!

Yea i got 130.5 too. I wrote the wrong number off the calculator lol.  I wound up with 1.22 g of ice needed.

Dear reezyfbaby;

Of course NOT!, because the limited precision.
But you wrote:  gram ice instead of kg ice.

Good Luck!
