Best Answer

Hot ice is crystallized sodium acetate trihydrate.

If normal sodium acetate dissolved in water crystallises it will generate heat(it's called an exothermic reaction), that's why it's called hot ice.

So hot ice isn't real ice: water/H2O in it's solid state.

It's crystallized sodium acetate dissolved in water

Molecular formulas:

Sodium Acetate: NaCH3COO

Sodium Acetate trihydrate: NaCH3COO . 3H2O

What happens if you keep hot ice in your fridge for a long time?

There is no such thing as hot ice. The ice is a cold and frozen solid made out of water. Ice happens when water freezes at 0 degrees Celsius. But if the ice is hot, it will turn into water. If you touch the top of fridge it most of the time hot or at room temperature, so the water(hot ice as you said it) will remain at the same temperature as the room or hot.

Why is dry ice compaerd to hot ice?

Only one of those is actually ice. Dry ice is frozen CO2 or carbon dioxide. Hot "ice" is only called hot ice because it is the product of an exothermic reaction (releasing heat) and because it looks like ice. Hot ice occurs when a super saturated solution of sodium acetate try-hydrate is cooled and then reintroduced to a sodium acetate crystal.
