Homework Help: Refrigerator Question

  1. Feb 27, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    If you leave the refrigerator door open in an enclosed room, will it cool the room over time or no?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I am thinking of the warm air/cool aire situation in my way of answering this problem. Any advice as to what the correct answer might be?
