Expert Answer:

According to the principle of calorimetry, heat liberated = heat absorbed.

So, mass of metal block x specific heat of the metal x change in temp. = mass of ice x latent heat of fusion.

Change in temp. of metal = 1000 - 0 = 1000o.


Apply the above formula and calculate the specific heat of the metal.
