    Molar mass of water M = 2x1 + 16 = 18g

    Amount of water: n = m/M = 75.2/18 = 4.178mol

    Heat transferred when water freezes = -nΔHfus = -4.178mol x 6.01kJ/mol = -25.11kJ

    (Negative as heat is removed, not added.)

    Entropy change (ΔS) at temperature T is defined as:

    ΔS = ΔQ/T = -25.11kJ / 273.15K = -0.0919 kJ/K = -91.9J/K
