 Question 141257: I'm trying to help my daughter with her science fair project. Her project was to find out if 3 different shaped containers(we used cylinder, round and square)with the same volume of water (355ml) in each, then frozen, would melt at the same or different speeds. I know that the one with the larger surface area will melt faster but what I'm not sure of is how to find out the surface area of each container. I didn't think it would be accurate to use the traditional surface area formula, measuring the container since the container isn't filled all the way. Hope this makes sense.
