Q. Molar heat capacity of water in equilibrium with ice at constant pressure is:-

a) zero

b) infinity

c) 40.4 `kJ mol^-1 K^-1`

d) 75.4 `kJ mol^-1 K^-1`

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

Water, in equilibrium with ice has a steady temperature of zero degree Celsius.

Water, in the liquid state, has a specific heat of exactly 1 calorie per gram.

Molar mass of water is 15.999+2.016=18.015 grams per mole.

Therefore, molar heat capacity of water at zero degree Celsius is

=18.015*1 Calorie/mole/K

=18.015*1*4.184 Joules/mole/K.

=75.4 J/mole/K.

None of the given options is correct.
