Which is a better shape for an icecube; a cube, sphere, or cylinder?

im thinking cube because then its harder for the sun to get on all sides of it, which would make it melt faster. Does that make any sense?

  1. .

    and also a cylinder and a sphere just seem like odd shapes for and icecube

  2. Scott

    better for what?

    a sphere is the most volume per surface area
    ... melts slowest
