An iron ball of mass 0.2 kg is heated to 10^(@)C and put into a block of ice at 0^(@)C. 25 g of ice melts. If the latent heat of fusion of ice is 80 cal g^(-1), then the specific heat of iron in cal g^(-1^(@))C is
A. 1
B. 0.1
C. 0.8
D. 0.008

Heat taken = heat given
or mcDeltatheta = mL
therefore(200)(s) (100)=25 xx 80
thereforec= 0.1 cal//g^(@)`C
