Rate of formation of ice

  1. Sir,
    Ice starts forming in a lake at 0 degree Celsius, when the atmospheric temperature is -10 degree Celsius. If the time taken for 1 cm of ice to be formed is 7 hrs, what is the time taken for the thickness of ice change from 1 cm to 2cm?
    Can you please give a hint to solve this problem?
