Do ice cubes melt faster in water or in air of the same temperature?

    Ice cubes melt faster in water. Temperature change occurs when molecules of one substance transfer energy through molecular contact with another substance. Water is a denser medium than air, so there are more molecules of water in the same amount of space. In this case we are talking about the surface area of the ice, where it comes into contact with something warmer than itself. Since water has more molecules in contact with the surface of the ices, the reaction (melting) occurs more quickly than in air.
