When you put metal in water it cools down quick. When you put plastic in the microwave, you're in for a big problem....Plastic is the answer.

The heat conductivity of a container will influence the rate at which its contents lose or retain heat. Aluminum being a metal is a good heat conductor (better than glass or plastic at least) and would allow ice cubes stored in it to absorb heat more readily than the other two.

Big animals lose heat faster than small animals because they have more area to release heat

plastic balloons lose air because particles are moving in the balloon and leave it

it will lose faster in can because reaction of acid (carbonic acid-H2Co3) with metal(can) is comparetively much faster than with glass(bottle) although it is slow with metal too as it is a week acid.

cus its uncoverd your letting all the heat out

The specific heat of both are essentially the same. i.e. it doesn't.

Faster than what? The answer is probably yes - black objects both absorb and radiate heat faster than objects of other colours, but surface finish (glossy or matt) also has an effect.

bodies of water tend to have more object in and animals that produce their own heat. it also absorbs heat faster than land. water actually would lose heat faster if it didn't gain it faster. It's a more precarious kind of substance than earth is. but heat from the light reflecting off the moon and the fish in the water slow the temperature drop.

Black colour does not absorb heat or loose heat faster, it is white colour that does it. So the Arabs always wear white coloured loose clothes.

The metal will lose heat in the transition and the change in temperature of the water won't be as great. The calculated transfer of heat from the metal to the water will be less.

Soil will lose heat faster than water. This depends on the specific heat of the two substances you are comparing. Specific heat of a substance is the amount of energy required to raise its temperature by 1 degree celsius. It also describes the amount of energy the substance would have to lose to change the temperature by one degree. The specific heat of water is unusually high (1 calorie/gram of water). The specific heat of granite, which is similar to the specific heat of soil minerals, is only 0.19 calorie/gram of granite). Dry soil will lose heat more slowly than wet soil.

alcohol dilates your blood vessels allowing the body to lose heat faster through the skin.

metals feel cold as they are very thermal conductive, so it will conduct the coolness through the metal, lose heat, thus feeling cold

No. Land releases energy at a faster rate than water. Land cools and heats more rapidly than water.

Soil absorbs heat much faster than water, but water does not have air in between like soil so it doesnt lose heat as fast, so water holds heat longer

This has to do with the transfer of electrons from one material to another through the contact of the materials. The transfer of electrons is static electricity, and because some materials have a higher tendency to gain or lost electrons than others, more or less static electricity is produced. Wool has a tendency to gain electrons. Both metal and plastic lose electrons; however, plastic has a far higher tendency to lose electrons than does metal. This is shown on the triboelectric series, a chart showing the relative tendencies of various materials to transfer electrons. Because plastic will lose more electrons to the wool than the metal will, more static electricity is produced.

When gases lose heat they condensate into liquids.

They usually lose heat by panting.

We lose body heat from every part of our bodies, but we lose the most from the head, typically.

Because your body is generating heat faster than it can lose it to the environment.

Yes it does the gas law that applies here says increase in velocity = decrease in temperature and pressure.
