How Does a Ice Cube Melt?


Ice cubes usually melt when the temperature is above the melting point of water. The molecules in ice cubes absorb heat and expand and with enough energy, the bonds holding the atoms together are broken and melting occurs. It should be noted that during melting, the excess heat does not lead to temperature change but breaking of bonds.

1. Provide each group of students with three ice cubes. Ask students to place each ice cube on a separate plastic plate. 2. Instruct students to leave one ice cube alone, as the control
What my people tell me is that, on a plastic lid it last about 1 hr. and 42 minutes.
What state are you in? How big a piece of ice is it? I am in Arizona, and believe me, a couple of ice cubes in a drink, lasts about 5 minutes in 100 degrees.
You do not indicate the initial temperature of the ice. If it is at the melting point already, then its temperature will be constant while it changes state. If it were initially well

Ice cubes are frozen masses of water. If you want them to melt, expose them to high temperatures. This is called an endothermic process where the temperature of the environment is higher that of the cube. Ice cubes can also be placed in water for them to melt.
