If ice forms on the outside of the glass cup the temperature of the glass would be 25 degrees Fahrenheit. This is due to the fact that water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

The process is called condensation, the ice water touching the glass causes the glass to cool and which causes the water vapour in the air to condense on the outside of the glass.

The water that forms on the outside of a glass of [ice] water is called condensation. It occurs because the surface of the glass is colder than the air surrounding the glass, which causes the water vapor in the air to cool and condense into a liquid on the outside of the glass.

It feels like ice , and glass like . · The glass filled with cold water and ice cubes felt cold on the outside as well.

if you have ice in it the ice will melt and get out

The air outside the glass has water vapor in it. This is cooled and condenses on the glass.

since water freezes at 0 degress celsius the temperature would have to be 0 degress or below.

Water can exist in three states; as liquid water, as solid ice, and as the gaseous water vapor. In the presence of a cold surface such as the outside of a glass containing ice, vapor in the air will condense into liquid water on the cold outside surface.

The cold drink cools the temperature of the cup, therefore moisture in the air condenses (turns from a gas to liquid) on the outside

A condensate is a liquid that is formed from the process of condensation. An example of a condensate is the water that forms on the outside of a glass filled with water and ice on a very hot day.

the glass is cold, so water vapor condenses in the air to the cup

Water droplets may form on the outside of a glass of water as a result of condensation. This is also how dew forms on grass.

the coldness of the ice water makes condensation, and so the condensation appears on the outer coating of the glass.

It is the opposite of evaporation. Think of a glass of ice cold lemonade on a hot humid day. Beads of water will form on the outside of the glass. This is water vapor in the air condensing when it is cooled by the outside surface of the glass.

If the glass of ice water remains in the kitchen then yes, the warm humid air of the kitchen will condense water on the side of the cold glass of ice water. If you take the glass outside then no. 25'F is below the freezing point of water so the air will be colder than the glass of ice water which can be no colder than 35'F. Besides this there will be no water in the air as it will have been frozen-out by the cold temperature, so there will be nothing to condense.

A beaker of Dry Ice will have VERY cold, glass walls. The moisture in the surrounding air comes into contact with the cold surfaces, condenses and freezes on them. Thus, your ice formation on the beaker.

The outside of an ecosystem is not glass.

If the liquid inside the beaker is cold, then the water vapor in the air outside of the beaker will condense when it touches the cold glass.

The ice water cools the glass down, meaning it is now cooler than room temperature. This causes the gases in the air to cool when they hit the glass. The gases then cool to become liquid leaving condensation (or mist as you have said) on the outside of the glass. =]

It is a physical change. The cool glass will cause humidity to condensate and form droplets of water.

Air around glass become saturated with decrease of temperature.So excess water in air get condesed.

Condensation is what happens when a gas changes to a liquid. Two examples are when night air hits a parked car window and condensates into a foggy, dew covered window. Another is when the air outside a glass condensates and forms water as the ice inside the glass melts.

Condensation forms on a glass of iced tea because of the air around the liquid cooling. When the air cools, it cannot hold onto the water, so it collects on the glass.

A glass of ice water is an object.
