Hey Graham,

I stand corrected. Can't argue with Physics :-)

Warm salt-free non-beer in the northern hemisphere

"" The heat of fusion for water at 0 °C is approximately 334 joules
(79.7 calories) per gram, and the heat of vaporization at 100 °C is
about 2,230 joules (533 calories) per gram.

2230 is vapour (this is where we were going wrong)
2230/4.184 = 533 (interesting but not relevent)

334 is fusion
4.184 is specific heat of water per 'K per gram etc etc
334 / 4.184 = 79.83

so melting ice absorbs 80'C of water heat
