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

Why does water freeze faster?

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.

Will solvent in water make it freeze faster?

What freezes faster warm water or cold water?

Cold water, less energy must be removed from cold water to make it freeze. warm water has more energy which needs to be removed before it freezes. it is an urban myth that warm water freezes faster.

Cold water.

What will melt ice faster salt or water?

Does salt make water freeze faster or slower?

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

Do I use warm or cold water to make ice cubes faster?


What is in water to make it freeze?

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

How do you make silicon harden faster?

Run cold water over it.

Does warm water or cold water freeze faster?

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.)

Does the ingredients in milk make it freeze faster or slower?


Does water freeze faster than lemonade?

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.

How do you make water cold?

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).

Does warm water freeze faster then cool water?

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

Can you make ice in Minecraft?

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

Does salt make water freeze faster?

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.
