1.5 cubic meters ice cube melting

  1. Oct 7, 2011 #1

    I'm new on this forum. We have some science days in our school, and there is a big 1.5x1.5x1.5m ice cube melting. There is a contest who will guess the aprox. time that it takes to melt.

    I think it will be more than two days, but I would like to get a more concrete answer somehow... :)

    So...is there a scientific way to calculate it? The average temperature outside is 14C (Celzius), and ice temperature is -30C.

    What should be the formula? What is your estimation of time needed to melt?

    Tahnks in advance for all the answers...
