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

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.

to make water freeze faster you put it some place that's colder.

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

its because tap water has diffrent liquids in it that make it freeze faster then pepper water.

because water is generally cold unless heated in a kettle. Coffee on the other hand is warm when you make it so if the water is colder to start with it will take less time to freeze.

Actually warm water will freeze faster because of the density is less and also the microscopic bubbles give more surface to mass ratio allowing the water to freeze quicker than more dense cold water! Kind of seems strange but facts are stranger than fiction! Jesus Love You!

Salt because water especially hot water will make it freeze faster.

Salt does not make water freeze slower. However, if it was ice, the salt would melt the ice.

Hot water will make sugar dissolve faster.

Nothing. Water freezes when it gets cold enough to freeze. If you dissolve things in water it makes the freezing temperature move lower.

An easy way to make water cold is to put it in the refrigerator. If this is not possible, adding colder water would make water colder. Actually, adding ice would make this process faster, as it is colder than cold water. And dry ice would make it cold even faster than ice (but dry ice is dangerous- be careful).

Yes because lemonade has lemon and lemon makes a tart taste usually which will make it freeze slower unlike water which doesnt have any tartness in it so water will freeze faster then lemonade. please give me trust points.

This almost seems like a no-brainer. If you start with warm and cold water, the cold water will freeze faster since the warm water will have to be cooled first. However, if the water is sitting in pipes (i.i. water pipes under a trailer for example) the hot water pipes will freeze first if neither is used since they will both achieve the ambient air temperature. This is because the heating of the water will release some of the dissolved gases which would otherwise cause the water to freeze at a very slightly lower temperature. At least this was what I was taught in Science class years ago. (A friend I lived with years ago thought he could make ice faster by using warm water, but he only understood part of this and I had to prove to him that it was the other way around.)

I have no idea but wouldn't it make more sense for cool water to freeze faster than warm water because it is closer to freezing temperature. I will have to try it out because I am curious now x x x

Salt doesn't make water freeze faster or slower.Actually, it is not a question of faster or slower, but of the freezing point, or the temperature at which the water freezes. Salt added to water decreases the freezing point. So, on a day when the temperature reaches 32 degrees Fahrenheit, water with salt in it will simply not freeze (this is why fast or slow has nothing to do with it). The more salt, the lower the temperature must go in order for the water to freeze. This is true until the water reaches its saturation point (holds as much as salt as it can in solution), then adding more salt will not make a difference.

Hot water has the energy(heat) to make the change go faster

Its the change in a temperature. If its cold water might freeze and make an ice cube.

Placing water in cold biomes will cause it to freeze and become ice.

Water was put in a very cold place so it could freeze into ice.

in order to cool something you cannot add cold, you can only remove heat. in order to freeze water, you must remove enough calories of heat energy from the water to bring it to 0 degrees celsius( 32 degrees fahrenheit) one calorie is the unit which increases the temperature of one gram (one cubic centimeter of water) of water by one degree celsius. so to answer the question it depends how quickly your cooling apparatus is removing the heat. you could theoretically freeze hot water as quickly as cold water if you used a better freezer on the hot water or put it in a colder place. If the location is constant for the hot water and the cold water, and they are being cooled at the same rate, then the cold water will freeze faster. When I'm going to make pasta on my stove, I take 190 degree water from the instant hot water tap and then put that on the stove, it boils much quicker than if I had put the cool tap water in the pot on the stove. same concept

The question does not make sense. Very bad grammar.

An egg will sink in water but will float in salt water. An egg will sink faster in hot water than it will in cold water.
