Problem 31E

Ice cubes float in a glass of iced tea. Why would cooling be less if the cubes were instead on the bottom of the drink?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 31E Step 1 : Let us understand the density of the water at a particular temperature 3 The ice will have density as 0.9167 g/cm The water will have density as 0.9998 g/cm Step 2 : At room temperature the tea will be hotter at the the top of the and as it will cooler at the bottom If the ice were to be added at the bottom of the tea, which is comparatively cooler end of the tea, it would cool more quickly at the bottom , where as the top layer will still stay hot So when add ice on the tea , the hotter end of the tea starts to cool and as it starts to melts the cooling reaches the bottom which is more effective
