(a) How much heat must be absorbed by the ice before it melts?

(b) If the outer surface of the ice chest is at 29.0° C, how long will it take for the ice to melt?

where r is the heat of fusion.

q = α(ΔT/Δx)A,

where q is the heat flow per unit time,

α is επσ thermal conductivity,

α =110^5 kcal/s m C° =

=0.041868 J/s m C°,

ΔT is the temperature driving force,

Δx is the thickness of the walls,

and A is the surface area,

q = 0.041868(29/0.03) 1.25 =

=50.59 J/s.

t = Q/q = 3.68510^6/50.59 = 7.2810^4 s = 20.23 h.
