At a picnic, a Styrofoam cup contains lemonade and ice at 0 degree C. The thickness of the cup is 2.0*10^-3m, and the area is 0.016m^2. The temperature at the outside surface of the cup is 35 degree C. The latent heat of fusion for ice is 3.35*10^5 J/kg. What mass of ice melts in one hour?

Can anyone please give me some hints to do this?Thanks a lot!

    The deltaTemp is (35-0)C.

    Q=Area/Thickness*Heatconductivity*deltaTemp

    For styrofoam, assume about .03Joules/(sec*m*C)

    Solve for q,the amount of heat.

    Now, finally a= massice*Lf

  • physics -

    Q=Area/Thickness*Heatconductivity*deltaTemp

    How you get this equation?
    and how you use the styrofoam=.03 J/s*m*C?
