Analyze It Questions:
1. Since the purpose of an ice cube is to keep a drink cold, is it better for an ice cube to have a high volume or a low volume? Why? (At least 3 sentences.)

2. Since heat touching the surface of an ice cube causes it to melt, is it better for an ice cube to have a large surface area of a small surface area? Why? (At least 3 sentences.)

3. How does increasing the size of an object affect its volume to surface area ratio?

2. To keep the drink cold, the ice must last as long as possible.

Thus, it should have a small surface exposed. That is where the heat transfer takes place.

So, you need a high volume relative to its surface.
