HI guys, I've got to to a project for science. To build a container for an ice cube (the half-circle type) to reduce it from melting.
Here is the outline:
Ice Cube Project
Objective: How long will a standard ice cube last in an insulated container. *Reduce the amount of conduction, convection, and radiation.
1. Find out how long an unproteced ice cube will last outside of the freezer. DONE (2.5 hours)
2. Design and build a container that will hold an ice cube and slow its melting. You can not use any pre-frozen materials. (have the ice cube in a small plastic bag) NOT DONE
3. Make a well labeled poster of your container. Large enough for the class to see. Show a cut-away view of what's inside your container. NOT DONE
4. Bring your ice cube to class on October 21st (put cube in on October 20th (at 8:00)) NOT DONE
A. Once your ice cube is in its container, do not have it in a cold place. (put it at room temp.)
B. Be prepared to open your container in class, display your poster, and tell about the experiment.
What I am asking you guys to do: How should I make my container?
I'm asking you guys because a lot of people on here are smart and would know the best way. COUGHANDIGETAPRIZEIFIWINCOUGH
Any help is appreciated,
