## Homework Statement

An ice ball is melting in a water bath. Find the time needed for the ice ball to completely melt. Heat transfer is only due to heat conduction. The radius of the ball is [itex]R_0=1cm[/itex]. The temperature of the water in the bath is [itex]t=10°[/itex]. There is an infinite amount of water compared to the size of the ice ball.

Heat of fusion of water is [itex]\lambda=334 kJ/kg[/itex]

Density of ice is [itex]\rho=900 kg/m^3[/itex]

Thermal conductivity of water is [itex]K=0,6 W/(m*K)[/itex]

## Homework Equations

[itex]Q=4/3*\pi R_0^3\rho\lambda[/itex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

The equation above is the only thing i know.
