What property changes when a ice cube melts?

When an ice cube melts, heat is transferred from the external environment to the frozen water, causing the molecules to move more quickly. The moving molecules contract, forming liquid water.


How will heat flow if an ice cube is dropped in boiling water?

Heat will flow from the boiling water into the ice cube.


What takes place as an ice cube cools a drink?

kinetic energy in the drink increasesA calorie of heat energy is transferred from the ice to the water of the drink. Because ice absorbs heat from the drink, cooling down its temp.Common mistake:People think that ice producess coldness, when all its doing to the drink is absorbing the heat, causing the ice cube to melt ;)You say that a calorie of heat energy is transferred from the ice to the water, but that is not entirely correct as a calorie is defined as the amount of heat that 1g of water releases when it cools by 1 degrees Celsius. What if i add a really small block of ice? Surely a calorie of heat will not be transferred from the ice to the water. Therefore it would be more correct to say that the total kinetic energy of the drink decreases.


What happens to the size of molecules when heat is applied to an ice cube in turned to steam?

the size of the ice cube decreases because it get heat and it melts


Does an ice cube release heat or do water absorb heat from the ice cube?

There is no such thing as cold, only absence of heat. The ice will use the heat from the drink to change state from solid to liquid.

How is heat transferred when an ice cube is put in water?

the heat is like fire,soit melts


Why does ice melt in your hand and make your hand cold?

your body temperature is higher than that of an ice cube's, so your fast-moving molecules in your hand hit the slow-moving molecules in the ice cube, warming it up. the transfer of ice to water is just to let the atoms and molecules move about free-er in liquid form.


Could a ice cube heat something up?

Yes. An ice can heat something is is colder than it is. Heat is transferred from higher temperature to lower temperature.


Do ice cubes radiate heat?

Yes, Ice Cubes radiate heat. Consider that an ice cube can be modeled as a grey body (similar to a blackbody, but with a different emissivity) with a temperature = 0 °C. The apply Planck's equation to calculation the radiant exitance of the ice cube. This will give you a measure of the amount of heat given off by an ice cube.


An ice cube feels cold when you touch it because your body loses heat by?

convection

What happens when you hold an ice cube in your hand?

Well the transfer of heat is called "Erected energy transfer" and is the same heat/energy that makes your penis warmer than the rest of the body when erected, hence the term "Erected energy transfer".

Susie dropped some ice cubes into her soda after dinner After a few minutes she noticed that the ice had melted into the soda What statement correctly explains what Susie witnessed?

Heat from the soda transferred into the ice cube, which melted the ice.


What would have to happen to make an ice cube melt?

Heat must have to be applied to the ice cube.


How does heat flow when you put an ice cube on you hand?

It flows, by conduction, from your hand to the ice cube.
