What is the best way to keep an ice cube from melting?
Transcript of What is the best way to keep an ice cube from melting?
Step 1: Gather different materials including Styrofoam, waxed paper, aluminum foil, and newspaper.
Step 2: Place each of these materials into a cardboard box or anything else that might act as an insulator.
Step 3: Place a cube in each box and record how long it takes to melt compared to when it's left out in the open air.
What is the best way to keep an ice cube from melting quickly?
My hypothesis is that using waxed paper is the best way to keep an ice cube from the melting quickly.
My results were almost close to my hypothesis.
The best way to keep ice cubes from melting is placing it in a box using Styrofoam. The ice cube lasted 1 hour with 4 minutes and 39 seconds.
Below are how long the other ice cubes lasted.
Waxed paper: 45 minutes with 21 seconds.
Aluminum foil: 30 minutes with 14 seconds.
Newspaper: 23 minutes with 39 seconds.
My hypothesis was incorrect even though I was close. This experiment was kind of long to do but at the same time it was fun. I liked this experiment a lot and I would recommend it to everyone since it is very easy and fun to do.
