Heat is a form of energy.
Law of conservation applies to the total energy.
Heat energy, individually is not conserved it transforms from one form to another form of energy.
In case of mechanical energy also, sum of kinetic energy and potential energy is conserved and not the kinetic and potential energy separately/individually.
Thus, heat is not a conserved quantity.

- A piece of ice of mass 40g is added to 200g of water at 50 degree celcius
- a calorimetry of mass 50g contains 200g of water at 30degree celcius . Calculate the final temperature of the mixture when 40g of ice at -10degree celcius is added to it.
- find result of mixing 10g of ice at-10c of water at 10c
- The temperature of 170g of water at 50degree celsius is lowered to 5degree celcius by adding certain amount of ice to it.Find the mass of ice added . (Take ,specific heat capacity of water=4200J/kg0c and specific latent heat of ice =36000J/kg)
- Water falls from a height of 50m. Calculate the rise in the temperature of water when it strikes the bottom. G=10ms-2 C=4200J/Kg°C
