the ice boat

Post by Erowen Andalai » Wed March 22 06 ; 7 13 am

On a hot summer day by a lake you are determined to build a boat made of ice, using a refrigeration unit and a large mold in which you can pour water. Nearby you notice an Egyptian mummy resting on a pile of wood pulp. What is the best strategy for building an ice boat that will not melt before you sail it across the lake?

Well, if you use the wood pulp on the out side it would shield the water from actually touching the ice which means that the pulp facing the ice would reamain at a colder temperature until the water has had time to soak through it and start raising the temperature.

You would use the bandages from teh mummy to hold the wood pulp in place. So thats my guess... coat it in wood pulp and use the bandages to hold the wood pulp in place
