Hi PF. I'm not asking this for academic or professional reasons, but merely out of curiosity. If I add ONE ice cube to a large glass of warm apple juice, two things will happen -the cube will melt, fairly quickly, and add its water content to the juice -the apple juice will be somewhat cooler than before If I instead add EIGHT ice cubes to the same glass of apple juice, two things will happen -they will begin to melt, but the melting will be slowed and nearly stopped as the juice cools -the juice will cool until it is nearly as cold as the ice Suppose I want my apple juice as cold as possible, but with as little added water as possible. If I add 8 ice cubes instead of 1 ice cube, will I have -a higher ratio of coldness to melted ice water, -the same ratio of coldness to melted ice water, -a lower ratio of coldness to melted ice water My intuition says that adding more ice cubes will make the juice cool faster, and the ice melt slower, and will thus yield the best result. But I worry that I may be missing variables here.
