The heat exchange must be calculated in several steps:

1. The heat lost by the steam to the ice when the steam condenses

2. The heat gained by the ice when it melts

3. The heat lost by the condensed steam to the original water as the temperature of the condensed steam equalizes with that of the water.

Part 1: The heat released by the steam as it condenses:

ΔH1 = (mass of steam)(latent...
