Answer :

Energy used to convert ice to water


E = mass × latent heat = mL


Energy absorbed by n photons with frequency v in time T is given by,



This energy is used to convert ice to water,




T α n-1, when v is constant


Hence, time decreases with increasing n, with v fixed.


T α v-1, when n is constant


Hence, time decreases with increasing v, with n fixed.


T α (nv)-1


Hence, time remains constant with n and v changing such that nv = constant.
