Tea in a metal cup would cool down relatively quickly, since the metal cup wall conducts heat very well.

tea cools very easily in a metal cup

NO! Metal is a better conductor than plastic. The metal would stay warmer for a longer amount of time. The plastic would cool off faster

it will cool faster in a metal cup. - the others retain heat better.

A hot cup of coffee will cool down at a certain rate, but as the coffee cools, the rate at which it cools slows down. This is why a "lukewarm" cup of coffee cools down so slowly. Even though the warm cup of coffee is cooling down quicker at first, the lukewarm cup essentially has a "head start" on the way to room temperature.

A plastic cup of hot water would be easier to hold than a metal cup. Most metals conduct heat, which would cause the water in the cup to heat the metal.

A substance cools down as the heat dissipates into the surrounding environment. The contact with the air allows this. The cup, having a greater amount of surface area relative to its volume, cools off faster than the spoon will.

Examples of such beliefs would be:1. Place a spoon on your coffee cup to cool it faster! *reason, heat is transferred to the metal spoon faster than it is transferred to the cup. 2. Warm air goes up, cool air goes down *reason, check the fridge when you open it at midnight, the air form it crawls down to your feet. Also, lit candle melts down then freeze, but the smoke goes up all the way.

Water in a metal cup will freeze faster because metal conducts coldness and energy the most. trust me, I did a project with a metal, plastic, glass, and paper to see which cup would freeze the quickest. Hopefully this answer helped.

Ofcourse it will cool down! the cup of hot chocolate isn't enough to heat the room, but the room is big enough and can cool down the cup. It's like putting an icecube in an oven. The icecube won't freeze the oven; the oven will melt the icecube.At 25 degrees the cup of hot chocolate will eventually freeze!!!!!

Type your answer here... the tea would make the would make the cup hot

a condensation of water will form on the outside of the metal container. What really happens is the frigid temperature of the cup actually cool the air down that it comes in contact with and water droplets form.

Since more milk is added to a cup of coffee than a cup of tea and since milk stays warmer longer than tea or coffee a cup of tea cools down quicker than a cup of coffee.

metal cup because it has insulation

It depends on which one radiates heat fastest. Since plastics are generally poor heat conductors, you'd expect the plastic cup to cool more slowly. But a thin plasic cup, painted black, may radiate more heat than a very shiny metal cup.

it cools down. most metal transfers heat very quickly and to a large extent.

Wow, that's scary. A metal cup is a cup that is made out of metal. And a cup is a thing that can have water or any other liquids, solids, or gases in it. Metal is a thing that can be used to make motorcycles,bikes,cars,refridgerators,freezers, and lots of other stuff. And a metal cup can be used to make sound. Yes, fun with sound.

If they were the same temperature then neither, they would both be the same warmth. the difference would be the energy they give off, the cup would have a lot less energy and would cool faster in a room with a lower temperature than it. the bath tub would cool a lot slower, and a lot more warm energy would be released into the air making the air around it a lot warmer than the small cup would. that is if infact the cup is a normal sized cup and the bath tub a normal size.

It does. Any object will heat up (or cool down) to the ambient temperature.

Yes, melt it and let it cool down a bit but i'd say mayonnaise would be better every 1/2 cup of oil would be about 2 table spoons of mayo but u can eyeball it

It is the Styrofoam cup as it is not a good conductor of heat but the metal cup is a good conductor of heat.

The top edge of the actual cup, be it metal or plastic must be sunk at least one inch into the ground. So technically there should be an inch of earth above the cup.
