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.

Actually warm water will freeze faster because of the density is less and also the microscopic bubbles give more surface to mass ratio allowing the water to freeze quicker than more dense cold water! Kind of seems strange but facts are stranger than fiction! Jesus Love You!

hot water. depending on your definition. however,water freezes more quickly when transferring from a hot environment to a cold one.


Warm water doesnt actually freeze faster. Distilled water (which you can get from boiling and collecting the steam) freezes at 0C or 32F. Water (such as tap water) with impurities will only freeze at a lower temperature.



Mpemba effect ,water evaporates faster so it has less water so it freezes faster



25F is quite cold. Water freezes at 32F.


warm water because the cold water will freeze the cell wall.


Yes. It is a proven fact by scientist that hot water will freeze faster than cold or warm. This process is called " The Mpemba Effect ".


No. An old wives tale. What you may have heard about is the Mpemba effect which has merit based on the application for which it was noted but for regular household experiments, cold water freezes faster than hot.

Warm water dissolves Alka-Seltzer faster than cold water based on our own scientific investigational experiments.


cold water because it is closer to freezing point alredy when hot water has to be coled down.




fish breathe faster in warm water than cold water is because fish are cold blooded. if the temperature of the water is colder then the heart rate of the fish falls. if the fish is in warm water, than the heart rate of the fish will go up, causing the fish to breathe faster. There is more oxygen in cold water. Thus, fish have to breathe faster in warm water to get more oxygen.
