In what temperature does alcohol freezes?
Asked in Chemistry, Laundry, Swine Flu (H1N1/09)
What freezes quicker water or rubbing alcohol?
Water. Although it's not really that it freezes faster but rather that it freezes at a higher temperature. How fast something freezes has to do with both its freezing point but also how much of it you have. A drop of alcohol will freeze faster than a giant container of water (assuming the temperature of the freezer is below the freezing point of alcohol). ...
Asked in North Pole
Would you use alcohol or mercury to measure the temperature at the north pole?
If I only had those 2 choices... I would use ALCOHOL since Mercury freezes at -38.72° Celsius. The North Pole can get down below -50° Celsius. Ethanol (alcohol) freezes at -114 ° Celsius Methanol (alcohol) freezes at -97.8° Celsius ...
What is freezing temperature of alcohol?
Every substance can freeze. Pure drinking alcohol freezes at -117 degrees Celsius. Jack Daniels freezes at approximately -47 degrees Celsius since it has 40% alcohol. That is -53 degrees Fahrenheit. ...
Asked in Chemistry
Can Water Substitute Coolant in Emergency if it is freezing cold?
No - water freezes at zero degrees Celsius. The alcohol used in coolants freezes at a much lower temperature. ...
Asked in Units of Measure
Why would you use an alcohol thermometer rather than a mercury thermometer to measure the temperature in a freezer?
A home freezer's ideal temperature for storing food is approximately -18 degrees Celsius. Mercury freezes at about -39 degrees Celsius, which is fairly close to the desired freezer temperature and can thus damage the thermometer. Ethanol, a common alcohol used in alcohol thermometers, freezes at -114 degrees Celsius, allowing it to properly function in freezers. ...
Asked in Physics
The temperature at which a substance freezes is lower than the temperature at which it melts?
Correct, the temperature at which a substance freezes is lower than the melting point. ...
Asked in Science
What is the name for the temperature at which a mixture freezes?
The temperature at which a mixture freezes is called the freezing point. For instance, water freezes at 32 degrees F. at sea level. ...
Asked in Physics
A temperature of 273k is the temperature at which water?
That's about 0 degrees Celsius. At that temperature, ice melts (or water freezes). That is equivalent to zero degrees Celsius (Centigrade). Water freezes at that temperature. ...
