You are given a pot of hot tea (350 mL) at a temperature of 85°C and a quantity of ice at -12°C. Determine the absolute minimum amount of ice you can add to the hot tea so that at equilibrium you have iced tea (ie. a very, very small amount of ice and some water). You can assume tea has the same density (1.00 g/mL) and specific heat (4190 J/kgK) as liquid water. The heat of fusion of H2O is 3.33×10^5 J/kg. The specific heat of ice is 2090 J/kgK.
