# A freezer has a coefficient of performance of 2.40. The freezer is to convert 1.80Kg of water at 25.0◦C to 1.80kg of ice at -5.0◦C in hour. A freezer has a coefficient of performance of 2.40....

**A freezer has a coefficient of performance of 2.40. The freezer is to convert 1.80Kg of water at 25.0◦C to 1.80kg of ice at -5.0◦C in hour. **

**a) What amount of heat must be removed from the water at 25.0 ◦C to convert it to ice at -5.0◦C?**

**b) How much electrical energy is consumed by the freezer during this hour?**

**c) How much wasted heat is delivered to the room in which the freezer sits?**

**Note that: for water Cw = 4190J/Kg.K, Lf = 3.34 × 105J/Kg.K & Cice = 2010J/Kg.K**

Your question belongs in the Science Q+A part of eNotes but I'll discuss it anyway.

COP. Your freezer takes 100 watts to make 240 watts . Incidentally breaking the Second Law of Thermodynamics - but not really.

You need to know two important equations.

When something changes its temperature but doesn't change phase the equation is:

Q = mc(T2 - T1)

Sorry I can't use super/subscript here.

During ( and only during) melting or boiling:

Q = mL.

Pleased to solve your simple heat calculation problem in another forum.
