Yes, as you may known, Black absorb heat, white repel, so therfore black ice cube will be more likely to melt faster than shiny transparant ice cubes.

### Does color effect the rate at which an ice cube melts?

Black absorbs heat and white reflects it. (other colors will fall somewhere in that range) Therefore, it would make sense that color would effect the rate at which an ice cube melts.

### Does color effect which an ice cube melts?

The rate in which an ice cube melts is dependent on the temperature of the outside air. The hotter it is the faster ice will melt. The color of a cup or dish will not affect the melting process.

### Does color affect the rate at which an ice cube melts?

No, not at all- the rate of melt of an ice-cube is entirely down to temeprature.

### What is the third procedure for does color affect the rate in which an ice cube melts?

I think it might have to do with ambient heat.

### What happens to an ice cube when heated?

it melts at a very fast rate

### Will the shape of an ice cube affect the rate at which it melts?

A cube can only have one shape "cubic" - (someone has asked you a trick question). However, certainly the rate at which a piece of solid ice melts IS affect by its shape, the greater the surface area of the piece of ice, the faster it will melt.

### What the materials you need for the question does color affect rate in which ice cubes melts?

No...? why would color affect ice. Color is a physical property.

### How does surface color affect rate of conduction?

The colour of a surface has no effect on the rate of conduction.

### Does an ice cube melt faster in hot or cold water or by itself?

The rate of melting is determined by the heat differential between the ice and the surrounding water. Ice melts faster in hot water. Ice melts even faster if the water is moving.

### How can you set up an experiment to measure the rate at which ice cube melts by using ice cube graph paper and petri dish?

(this isnt really an answer) im doing my chemistry homework and i see this question and its due soon...help I'm a 7th grader

### What decreases the rate at which a substance melts?

decreasing the temperature
