Homework Help: Length of cooling including latent heat

  1. Mar 24, 2014 #1

    I would like to know how to calculate how long the phase transition when cooling lasts. So basically how long the latent transition lasts.

    I really don't have any ideas how this could be calculated, although I would assume it is function of the mass.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Nvm found the solution; knowing the convection allows the the dQ/dt to be calculated. The rest is common sense.
