It freezes faster when it's hot, because the water precipitation makes the volume the water takes up less, thus allowing it to freeze faster.

Cold air and hot water makes water freeze faster simply because the hot water is steaming and so the result is that there is less water to freeze. hot water = steam = less water less water = faster freeze cold air = faster freeze

which water will freeze faster? cold water with salt or hot water with salt????

Yes. Hot water freeze faster than cold see Mpemba Effect.

Cold water freezes faster because hot water has to cool down to the freezing temperature before it can freeze.

I think what you meant to ask was "Does cold water freeze faster than hot water?" It does because its temperature doesn't have to change as much.

I do not know the answer but i think hot water will freeze faster than cold water. wizgirl says~ i do not believe that water will freeze faster. that does not make sense at all.

It has been proven that hot water freezes faster than cold water.

Cold water will freeze faster. Because the freezing point of water is 0oC, water that is closer to that point will freeze faster then hot water. This is because it will require less time to lower the temperature to the freezing point.

Cold water freezes faster, but if water is boiled and allowed to cool to the same temperature as cold water, the water that was boiled will freeze faster due to the absence of air bubbles in the water.

warm water because the cold water will freeze the cell wall.

Hot and cold water and a freezer and a timer or stopwatch

No, hot water does not freeze faster since hot water has molecules that move around faster than frozen water. It would take a higher cooling point before it would freeze.

hot water freezes the fastest because it evaporates and there is less water to freeze!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No. It takes longer to freeze because cold water is closer to it's freezing point.

Cold water, being the closest to freezing point, will obviously freeze the fastest. Hot water will freeze the second fastest, and salt water barely ever freezes, except in very cold conditions.

Warm water will not freeze faster because it will first need to cool and then freeze. If you take a two samples of water and boil sample A, let it cool so that both sample A and B are at the same temperature and then put them in the freezer, the boiled water (sample A) will freeze faster. Also, if you have tap water and purified water, the purified will freeze faster.

cold water is best because it will freeze faster

Yes it does. Cold water freeze slower than normal or hot water.

The warmer water is, the longer it takes to freeze. Likewise, adding salt lowers the freezing point, making it longer to freeze.

i think that cold water freezes faster than hot water cause the particle in cold water are already cold so all the freezer have to do let the air come down and around the cup than it will freeze faster. <-----incorrect The right answer: hot water freezes faster coz the temp drops faster so when it gets to the cold water temp is it still freezes faster

Yes. Water of any starting temperature must be cooled to 0 oC in order to freeze.

The fact that hot water may freeze faster than cold is often called the Mpemba effect
