I think it all depends. What is the ambient temperature of the air or water and what kind of water (moving water or settled, salt or distilled)? With all things being equal it will melt faster in the water because of what scientists call convection current.
an ice cube will melt in hot water faster than hot air
an ice cube melts faster in water.it depends on the temperature of the air or water, if the water is warmer than the room air temperature, it will melt faster in the water.
An ice cube melts faster in water than in air due to the transfer of heat. Water can transfer heat to melt the ice quicker than the air can.
I believe ice cubes in apple juice will melt faster, since water is clear, and juice is red, juice will absorb more sunlight than water will, and therefore heats up faster.
Yes; because the rushing water will use (erosion) to wear it away faster than the temperature surrounding the ice cube in the air will
A good way to make a hypothesis is to use an "if... then..." statement. If you think it will melt faster in water you could say: "If the ice cube in is water, then it will melt faster than in air" or something along the lines of that.
I think it will melt faster in soda, cause of the chemicals it has more than juice.
It's because THE TEMPERATURE of the water. The higher temperature the faster melts.
A sea water ice cube -- Because the melting point of sea water is lower than that of normal water.
No, it wouldn't. a sugar cube would melt a lot faster in a cup of Hot water. the hot water helps it desolve more evenly than cold water.
A snowball melts faster than an icecube.
Try it out!
water. It has a higher temperature than iceEDIT:You would need some pretty special conditions for ice to melt when surrounded by more ice.An Ice Cube melts faster in water because water has a higher temperature than ice.The larger the difference in temperature between the ice and water, the faster the ice will melt.
water only contains oxygen and carbon dioxide, where as milk contains the same and additional micro-organisms. thus water will take less to breakdown/melt.
Yes it does, in northern states when it snows they use ice to melt the streets.
The ice cube will melt faster if it was previously dunked in water. Ice cubes will melt when they are placed in liquid since water temperature is higher than that of ice.
An Ice cube melts faster cause an Iceberg is bigger which takes it a long time to melt sometimes it can even take years for an iceberg to melt.
That all depends on the size of the ice cube and the water and air temperature. According to the square/cube law, smaller ice cubes will melt faster, proportionately, than larger ice cubes at the same temperature. So a block of ice will last longer than the same weight of ice in cubes. The greater the surface area exposed, the faster the ice will melt. Ice in water will tend to melt slower than ice in air, which is why you would typically NOT want to dump cold water out of an ice chest, provided the food will not get wet. Running a stream of warm water over an ice cube will melt it much faster than blowing warm air on it.
water does not melt but ICE does....
Your hand is much warmer than the table.
It absorbs more light
in the fresh water the convection currents take the cold melt water to the bottom of the glass and replace it with warmer water at the top by the ice cube. This results in the ice cube melting quickly. In the saltwater the liquid is denser than the fresh water so the cold melt water does not sink as quickly. This slows down the convection currents and results in the ice cube lasting longer
