Well you will have to determine why it is leaking. It is just a loose fitting? try tightening it up with a wrench Is there a crack? Is the pipe white PVC (plastic) or copper or even gray metal? If it is any of these you will need to cut it out and replace that section. You might want to consider hiring a plumber.

Hot water pipe rust first as compared to the cold water pipe for the same chemical composition of the water.

Because hot water is still in the pipes from when you turned on the hot water, and when you turned on the cold faucet it had to let out the hot water first. This means you have a single-pipe sink. Double-pipe sinks have a pipe for hot and a pipe for cold and it blends them as it turns on.

The extreme cold freezes the water and makes it expand in the pipe. When the pipe expands with the water, the pipe will then burst in the extreme coldness.

depending on what pipe is leaking if you are a beginner at doing plumbing then I would suggest you take apart what pipe is leaking and bring it to a local hardware store and they should help you fix it. If its a water pipe that hooks up to your faucet then turn off the supply stops before removing anything in worse case call a plumber.

Probably mineral deposits. You probably have a leaking pipe or some other type of water source that's causing the mineral to build up on the pipe.

The cold-water pipe chills the air immediately surrounding it. The cold air cannot support the same amount of moisture that warm air can, so the water vapor condenses out and sticks to the pipe.
