So we have x0 = 0. x= 2kice ∆T t = 2.18 × 10− 4 t (sec) = 2.18 × 10− 4 × 3600t (h) = 0.89 t (h) ρice L f In other words, the thickness of the ice grows as t with increasing time. ((WileyPlus)) 65. Let h be the thickness of the slab and A be its area. Then, the rate of heat flow through the slab is kA ( TH − TC ) Pcond = h where k is the thermal conductivity of ice, TH is the temperature of the water (0°C), and TC is the temperature of the air above the ice (–10°C). The heat leaving the water freezes it, the heat required to freeze mass m of water being Q = LFm, where LF is the heat of fusion for water. Differentiate with respect to time and recognize that dQ/dt = Pcond to obtain Pcond = LF dm . dt Now, the mass of the ice is given by m = ρAh, where ρ is the density of ice and h is the thickness of the ice slab, so dm/dt = ρA(dh/dt) and Pcond = LF ρ A dh . dt We equate...
