| **In an electric furnace with a power of 100 kW, a steel ingot was completely melted in 2.3 hours. What is the mass of the ingot if it is known that the steel had to be heated to 1500 ° C before melting began? Neglect energy loss.**

In order for us to be able to melt the ingot, we need to give it the energy to heat it to the melting point. We also need to know the energy for the melting process of this ingot. We have:

A = Q Q = cm (t2-t1) lm

A = Pt

Substitute Q and A into the equation and m. We have:

m = Pt / c (t2 – t1) lm = 1000 kg.

One of the components of a person's success in our time is receiving modern high-quality education, mastering the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for life in society. A person today needs to study almost all his life, mastering everything new and new, acquiring the necessary professional qualities.
