How come it takes longer for something that has been in the freezer to melt?
The freezer is kept colder than the fridge. Mine says recommended temp for freezer is 0°F and 37°F for fridge.

Answer . It shouldn't! Your freezer is too warm! It should be set below 0 Â°C (32 Â°F) and therefore snow should not melt inside of it.
Insulate it as much as possible from heat sources, the more layers of insulating material used the better. I think the more layers of insulation and a contaor it could probley work.
a little bit longer because even though the freezer is cold the back is colder than the front and therefore the ice may take a while longer
because in a freezer its really cold so the ice cube freezes andwhen you take the ice cube out the freezer it melts because it ishotter outside the freezer. (there is a change in temperature) :)It booms into water if it gets too warm
The amount of time required for a pile of snow to melt is proportional to the amount of snow. This is because a bigger pile of snow needs more amount of heat to melt. A smaller pile can get enough heat in a short period of time.. So next time you make a snowman, make sure you make a huge one, so th…at he stays with you for a longer period of time ;-) ( Full Answer )
Re: Refrigerator Cooling Problems (General) DISCONNECT POWER (UNPLUG) I am not responsible for your injuries; contact a qualified service technician if you are uncertain about any of these suggestions. The first thing to do is to take a flexible hose of appropriate diameter and blow out the con…densation drain tube. First, remove front grille and/or back bottom cover. The tube drains into drain pan near compressor. Reach in with hose from front or back of fridge (whatever is easier), insert hose in or over drain tube and blow into with your mouth. (All you're doing is cleaning tube of any debris which may be preventing proper draining of moisture condensate.) This condensate, if building up due to lack of drainage, can freeze close enough to temperature sensing device. Now system thinks refrigerator is cold when it is not, compressor does not need to run and you end up with warm refrigerator.* This can also occur if defrost timer, heating element, and/or evaporator fan are faulty. Frost buildup, due to not be defrosted, can also cause the same condition as above. (If you are electrically competent, you can bypass timer and run heater and evaporator fan manually, for period of time, to see if this solves the problem. (You'll see water dripping from drain tube into pan) (If timer is not solid state you may be able to see if its motorized timing mechanism is turning) If running heater and evaporator fan manually solves problem than timer is bad. Also: Open doors and allow compartments to warm up and feel for air coming in thru vents into freezer and refrigerator. (you may need to hold door light switch(es) closed, light off) You should hear compressor turn on for this to occur. You may simply have blocked air passageways and/or an inoperative damper (present in some refrigerators). * While you have front and back bottom panels removed, clean dust from coils. (search the internet for a small enough vacuum cleaning tool to do the job) I thought this site was quite informative: http://applianceguru.com/forum1 ( Full Answer )
It should not, if it is the freezer is not working properly and should be checked.
Well, when my lip balm was melting I put it in the freezer and it came out solid again. It might be the same with soap
Some ways is to use salt, styrofoam from coffe, vaccum flasks, aluminum foil, or even a blanket!! (trust me, I've read that in a book, and it made sense.)
Yes, although not as brightly. The cooler temperature slows the rate of reaction in the stick. the most it will last is one week, but it only looks good for about 4 or 5 days, if you play with it for an hour each night.
Fill a bowl with Bicarbonate of soda and leave it in there. It is great for absorbing smells. Answer Thoroughly clean the freezer and rinse, using baking soda and water.

when the ice cube is taken out of the freezer the warm air or the climate change will have the effect to make it melt because when the ice cube freezes its in a very cold climate at about 32 degrees or cooler and when warm air hits what ever was cold it heats up and it melts it back to its regular… form.

It would take about 1-7 days depending on website some websites with cheap or free shipping and handling like on websites like all4cellular it would take about 1-3 depending on where you live but i prefer you pay the shipping if it asks you if you want free shipping because if its free 40 percent of… the time it misplaced or damaged and if you pay it would come faster and 85 percent of time it wouldn't get misplaced and or damaged.

This is because the freezing/melting point of water is 0 degrees celsius(i think that's 32F but you'll have to check). Your freezer is below this temperature and so the water changes phase and turns solid. When back outside the freezer the ice will take in thermal energy and "thaw" and revert back t…o a liquid.

Chickenns melts faster than ice ice is a hard thing chickenns are soft oh yeah
Assuming a constant temperature, for each, and needing at least 212 deg.F to boil water, and since, 32 deg. is freezing, 90 being mid point. The time to go from 32 to 90, would be shorter than from 90 to 212. 58 deg. change, as opposed to a 122 deg. change. Provided the same energy is used for both …thawing, and boiling. ( Full Answer )
They conduct the heat from matter around them, and warm up. Once the water gets warmer than 32 Celsius, it turns into a liquid.
you can go into a cold region. you can use snow. that's all I've got o3o hope that helps :]
Choclate with less sugar is easy to melt and the more sugar you have the harder it is to melt.
Yes. You can take yourself to the doctor. Other than that, you will remain sterile.
Because there is no gravity on the moon so it makes it slower to get back to the Earth. On the Earth since there is gravity it takes us a shorter amount of time to launch into space. posted by, Adam Lambert

an ice cube melts when the ice cube gets the heat from the warm air and increases the ice cubes temperature
Well I had an ice cream stand this summer and didn't have a freezer so I put ice in my wagon and put a bunch of umbrellas on top and poured cold water on toip of them and suprisingly it actually kept the ice cream cold the whole entire day!
Place it into a high-compression-chamber and raise it to a pressure where it changes to one of its higher temperature forms. This of course takes an incredible amount of pressure and the equipment needed would be far more expensive than a freezer. Another Perspective: Place the ice to be conse…rved, in the top part of a double boiler. In the bottom half, place disposable ice, rock salt, and some water (enough of each to surround the upper half when it's in place). Place the top half into the bottom half. This won't keep it forever but it should keep it from melting for at least 1/2 - 1 hour. The keep time can be extended by insulating the system, such as wrapping with wet towels (the evaporation will help to keep the system cooler, longer). There is another, more elaborate method, involving parabolic mirror(s), in which you can expose the ice to the (4 o K) sky, but this requires some fabrication skills and a little bit of money. However, once this system is in place and working, the keep time is indefinite. At any rate, it's a great demonstration, and other applications for this principle might be found. ( Full Answer )
How do you get melted plastic off a t-shirt I have tried the brown paper bag and iron thing as well as putting it in the freezer and it still wont come off?
It is history. The paper bag and iron is for wax. If you did that first, you just melted more plastic into the fabric. It will not come out. If you had froze it first, it might have popped off, or it may have already been into the fabric.
Metal is a conductor of heat, while cardboard is an insulator. The metal box will heat up quickly, while the cardboard box will be resistant to heat change.
When you put food/microbes in a cold place, it slows down the bacteria growth. The colder the place, the slower the growth. Once you get to -18 degrees Celsius (average freezer temperature), bacterial action stops and food can be kept for up to 3 months because the bacteria are small (as their growt…h has been slowed) and the action has been slowed down. In a fridge which is about 3 degrees Celcius, food can only last a few days because the growth has only slowed slightly and water is available. ( Full Answer )
The reason that melting ice usually happens faster than boiling water is because water is one of the few things that stays hard even though it is really close to its melting point (32 degrees Fahrenheit) freezers usually stay around 0 to 20 degrees so it only has to raise around 10 degrees to start …melting. However when it comes to boiling water you usually star around room temperature ( around 75 degrees) and have to go all the way up to the boiling point (212 degrees). ( Full Answer )
its a physical changes the particles in the ice cream do not move cause its a liquid
Most of the drawers come out by pulling them out and lifting it up off of the track at the end, and then continue to pull it out.
they conduct the heat from matter around them, and warm up. Once the water gets warmer than 32 celsius, it turns into liquid
Foods such as meat stay 'fresh' longer in the freezer because the cold temperature in the freezer reduces the amount of bacteria that can grow on the food, as well as, in some cases, reducing the rate at which the food ripens.
they just used insolated boxes to keep their ice frozen and their food cold. actually a man would stop by with big bags of ice asking you how many you would like to buy for your ice box because obviously they melt. kinda like a milk man. im not sure where he got the ice from in the first place thoug…h but i know that's where households used to get it from ( Full Answer )
The food is a solid and won't melt under normal circumstances even when taken out of the freezer. It would have to be pretty hot to melt a chicken, but by then we'd all be dead. And when you unfreeze something from the freezer you're only melting the frost on the outside and slightly warming the ite…m, but not fully warming it until it si cooked. But you probably already knew that. ( Full Answer )
That will depend on the antibiotic, but the short answer is the antibiotic will likely be destroyed by being placed in a freezer. The ice crystals that will form will break up the antibiotic and render it ineffective.
If you toast the nuts lightly you'll bring out the flavor of the nut and diminish any other flavors they might have picked up.
Do you mean "why does water freeze into globs in the freezer?" If not, you probably either need a new freezer, or you need to make the temp. in the freezer lower so they dont melt.Most freezers have either a knob that you can turn on/in them or instructions in a manual on how to change the temp.
No. Carbonated will melt in a shorter time than water. Carbonated drinks have dissolved carbonic acid in them, which will lower the freezing point. (This is similar to how adding salt to ice makes it melt at a lower temperature.) So, if two solutions are frozen at the same temperature and then tha…wed at the same temperature, the carbonated drink will melt first. ( Full Answer )
Ice cream needs to be kept below freezing, because it has ICE in it, and ice needs to be kept at 0 degrees centigrade or lower. On average a fridge is 4 degrees centigrade so it will melt in the fridge...
The reason why it takes sand to melt ice longer than salt does, is because salt draws or absorbs the moisture in the ice faster than sand that just has a rough texture. Yes, there is salt particles in sand but not as much as normal salt by itself.
Cal;l your trash co. They will take large items for you for free once or twice a year or you can check a local appliance recycler, some might take them away for free.
because substances boil at a higher temperature than when it melts.therefore, boiling takes more energy than melting and more energytakes more time.
The scarf insulates the beaker from having direct contact with the surrounding warm air, thus slowing the transfer of heat.
It depends what you mean by 'cold' ! Most modern freezers can reach their working temperature of minus 18 degrees Celsius, in about an hour.
The speed of both melting and evaporation depends upon the substance in question (you are probably thinking about water) and the temperature at which these phase changes are taking place. My own observation is that melting is usually faster than evaporation.
The novel title "Something Wicked This Way Comes" was taken as a direct quotes from William Shakespeare's Macbeth. Ray Bradbury may have been a fan of Shakespeare which may be the reason this title was chosen.
When ice is left outside the freezer, it absorbs the heat out of the air. As long as the air, surface, or liquid in question is warmer than the ice, the ice will eventually melt. That is how ice works in a drink. The drink transfers its heat to the ice, and as the ice absorbs the heat, it melts. Ice… is like potential energy, but in reverse. ( Full Answer )
The rate at which an ice cube melts depends on how quickly heat istransferred to it from the surroundings. I wouldn't expect muchdifference between the two situations, but if there is one I'dexpect the one in the cup to melt more slowly. That's because theair around the cubes will get cold and the s…hape of the cup mighttrap the cold air, leaving the ice in a colder place than the room,whereas the air around the plate will be constantly moving. Allthis depends on the exact size and shape of the cup. ( Full Answer )
"Melt" is to go from solid to liquid. The things that were liquid before they were frozen, like the ice and orange juice, will melt. The rest of the stuff, like the meat, will thaw.
