Does the colour of the surface on which an ice cube sits affect the speed with which an ice cube melts?
yes. black absorbs the most heat and will make the cube melt faster. white absorbs the least heat and the cube will melt slower! ...

Does the color of a liquid affect how fast an ice cube melts in it?
Yes. If its black, it will take in more heat and the ice cube will melt faster. If its white, it wont take in heat and the ice cube wont melt as fast. ...

How does the surface area affect how quickly an ice cube will melt?
An ice cube melts by having heat transferred to it from its surroundings. The greater the surface, the more of its particles are in touch with the surroundings, therefore the more heat it can attain in a certain amount of time. ...
Asked in Physics
If you are holding an ice cube is heat moving your hand to the ice cube or from the ice cube to her hand?
When you are holding an ice cube, heat moves from your hand to the ice cube. Your hand is warmer than the ice cube obviously and therefore the heat from your hand is transferred to the ice cube (which eventually causes it to melt). ...
Does the shape of an ice cube affect how long it takes the ice cube to melt?
Yes, absolutely. Heat transfer from the surrounding environment into the ice cube causes it to melt. The greater the rate of heat transfer INTO to ice cube, the faster it will melt. The greater the surface area of the ice cube, in relation to it size, the faster the melting will occur. The ideal shape for the least heat transfer [and this is true for cold or hot objects] is a SPHERE. A sphere has the minimum surface area for the...
Why does an ice cube melt faster in water than in air?
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. ...
Asked in Chemistry
How do you solve a problem finding the heat that is required to melt ice?
You would start by looking up the specific heat of fusion for ice. Then you multiply that by the amount of ice you're trying to melt (you may have to do some unit conversion to get your specific heat and ice mass in compatible units). That will give you the amount of heat required, and again you may need to do a unit conversion to get it in the units you want. ...

Does the shape of an ice cube matters how quickly it meltes?
No, only the mass of the ice and the temperature of its enviorment matters how fast it will melt. Also, both the amount of direct and indirect heat does make a difference to how fast it will melt. ...
Asked in Snow and Ice, Science
How much heat is required to melt?
That depends on what you are trying to melt. Heat is needed to melt something (going from the solid phase to the liquid phase) during melting the introduction of heat cannot be observed as a temperature change, as the temperature remains constant during the process. The latent heat of fusion is the enthalpy change of any amount of substance when it melts. ...
