ice has formed on a pond and steady state has been reached. the air temperature above the ice is -10 degrees celcius, while at the bottom of the pond the temperature is 4 degrees celcius. the total depth of the ice and water is 0.50m. if the thermal conductivites of ice and water are 1.68 and 0.50 W/m*K respectively, how thick is the ice?

2. Relevant equations

H=k*A*delta T/delta x

3. The attempt at a solution

im not really sure on how to solve this question, guided steps would be really appreciated, i got an exam in 2 days and not sure hjow to solve it:( help would be great:D thx
