Which provides more cooling for a Styrofoam cooler, one with 10lb of ice at 0C or one with 10lb of ice water at 0C? Explain your reasoning.

10# ice requires heat to melt the ice + heat to heat the water after it melts.

10# ice water requires heat to heat the water.
Which do you think will cool better and longer?
