Answer: The correct answer is Option C.
Explanation: The heat required can be calculated by using the formula:
where, q = heat required or released
m = mass of the substance
L = Latent heat
As, this process is the melting of ice, so latent heat of fusion is used:
Latent heat of fusion for ice is 334 kJ/kg
Mass of the object = 347 grams = 0.347 kg (Conversion factor: 1kg = 1000 grams)
Putting the values in above equation, we get:
Converting kilo-joules into joules, we use the conversion:
1 kJ = 1000J
So, q = 116000J
Hence, the correct option is 3.
