Textbook Problem

Will an ice cube wrapped in a wool blanket remain frozen for (a) less time, (b) the same length of time, or (c) a longer time than an identical ice cube exposed to air at room temperature?

To determine
The time for the ice cube wrapped in a wool blanket remain frozen when compared with the ice cube exposed to air at room temperature.

Explanation

Given Info: One ice cube wrapped in wool blanket other identical ice cube exposed to air.

Wool blanket acts as a thermal insulator. Thermal insulator does not allow the heat to get in or get out.  Wool blanket prevents the outside heat to reach the ice cube. So, the ice cube wrapped with the wool blanket remains frozen for longer time than an identical ice cube exposed to air at room temperature.

Conclusion:

Wool blanket acts as a thermal insulator...
