An ice cube is denser than air, or the other way around

an ice cube melts when the ice cube gets the heat from the warm air and increases the ice cubes temperature

A very cold ice cube may appear to smoke, but actually what you are seeing is water vapor. The air around the ice cube is cooled by the cold ice cube, and when it cools, water vapor in the air condenses into fog.

An ice cube is solid, and contains little gas although there could be air bubbles inside the ice.

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.

No! Snowflakes fall out of the sky ... ice cubes are created in the freezer.

Yes, the warmer the air temperature of the environment the quicker the ice cube melts. Also, ice in a warm fluid environment will melt quicker than ice at the equivalent air temperature.

Its in air, the air can cool it down once melted I THINK

If it is in water it will start to become the same temprature as the water. But if it is on paper towel the air aroud itwill melt the ice cube.

Yes; because the rushing water will use (erosion) to wear it away faster than the temperature surrounding the ice cube in the air will

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.

It depends which is at a higher temperature, but ice should normally melt faster in air.

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).

the crushed ice has a larger surface area that is exposed to the air.

A simple example is to take 1 ice cube, which has 6 sides. Neatly cut the cube into 4 quarters (4 cubes). There are now 24 sides of the original single ice-cube exposed to the air, so melting should increase.

As long as the temperature of the liquid is warmer than the surrounding air temperature, yes.Even if the temperature of the liquid is the same as the surrounding air, the ice cube may still melt faster, because liquids are better conductors of heat than air is. But different solid surfaces have different thermal conductivities, so unless your ice cube is suspended in air, you're not comparing a liquid and air; you're comparing a liquid and a solid surface. An ice cube on a sheet of metal at room temperature might be found to melt faster than an ice cube in a drink at room temperature, while an ice cube sitting on a piece of styrofoam might melt much slower.I'd say try it.

no Ice Cube was and is not a gangster
