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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

Does water freeze faster than vinegar?

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

no salt water does not freeze faster than sugar.

AnswerHot water doesn't freeze fasterAccording to, hot water freezes faster than cold water.But I do not have any idea about your question.lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

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

no because the cold water speeds up the process by starting it

I suppose that pure water freeze faster.

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.

Because the particles in the cold water are slower than the particles in hot water and they become slower and slower until it freezes.

Because hot water makes things melt and cold water makes things freeze.

Actually hot water freezes faster then cold water this is known as the Mpemba effect. The effect was first observed by Aristotle in the 4th century BC.

Yes water freeze faster than coffee and orange juice

Hotter water drop in temperature faster than cold water but the cold water will freeze first. The salty water comes last.

soda has bubbles, which hold warmer air than the temperature you are freezing it at.
