Input interpretation:

meat defrosting time


Equation:

t_R = (W 1 day)\/(5 lb) |   |  \nt_R | thawing time in a refrigerator\nW | weight of meat\nlb | pound (~~ 0.4536 kg)\nday | day (= 24 h)\n(assuming meat thaws in air or water with a temperature less than 40 °F)


Input value:

weight of meat | 10 lb  (pounds)


Result:

thawing time in a refrigerator | 2 days\n= 170000 seconds\n= 2900 minutes


Defrosting time vs. weight:
