    Answer:

    1600 cal

    Explanation:

    The formula

    q=mΔ_{fus}[tex]H^{0}[/tex]

    is used to calculate the heat required to melt a solid where q=amount of heat, m=mass and Δ_{fus}[tex]H^{0}[/tex] is the enthalphy of fusion

    now we substitute, m=20g, Δ_{fus}[tex]H^{0}[/tex]=80cal/g

    Therefore, q=20g x 80cal/g =1600 cal

    I hope you find this information useful and interesting! Good luck!
