Why does ice cream melt faster in a plastic container rather than a metal one?


Plastic....slower. Metal is a better conductor...the energy flows through faster...melts faster.




The plasitic as an insulator holds heat into the plastic longer than metal. Therefore with the heat held into the plastic longer the ice cream melts.

Witness of jesus:

Hi Van, Welcome to QnA. If the icecream is in a transparent plastic container you then get a greenhouse effect. The incoming light is absorbed and re-radiated as heat, which gives you warmer conditions and a faster melting time than a metal container.


Metal keeps it colder because it conduct better.
