## To sketch: A rough graph of the temperature of the water as a function of the elapsed time.

Expert Solution

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

Some ice cubes are put in a glass filled with cold water and then it is placed on the table and cooled.

Observation:

Let the time in x-axis and the temperature in y-axis. Initially when ice cubes are put in a glass filled with cold water, the temperature of water is freeze as ice melts. And then the temperature increased and reaches the room temperature as the ice melted. Thus, the rough graph of the temperature of the pie as a function of time is shown below in Figure 1.

From Figure 1, it is observed that the temperature is decreasing at the beginning, remains constant in the middle and then increasing and reaches the room temperature.
