Kinetics Vs. Room Temperature Blocks

Satisfactory Essays
From observing the experiment, the cooler block melted the ice instantly whereas the room temperature block melted the ice at half the rate of the cooler block. I made an observation that the two blocks were composed of different materials, although they appeared to be identical to the naked eye. The cooler block, assuming it’s a metal, is a better conductor of heat than the room temperature block because of the travel rate of the heat molecules. The room temperature block is most likely composed of a plastic making it a poor conductor of heat because of the slower rate of the heat molecules. Due to the difference in heat conductivity of the cooler and room temperature blocks the cooler block had a higher heat conductivity, therefore was
