# Which freezes faster hot or cold water?

###### Wiki User

Cold water will freeze faster.

Because the freezing point of water is 0oC, water that is closer to that point will freeze faster then hot water. This is because it will require less time to lower the temperature to the freezing point.

cold water freezes fasterHot freezes faster than cold.Cold water freezes faster.

Yes, hot water freezes faster than cold water as seen in the Mpemba effect.

i think that cold water freezes faster than hot water cause the particle in cold water are already cold so all the freezer have to do let the air come down and around the cup than it will freeze faster. &lt;-----incorrect The right answer: hot water freezes faster coz the temp drops faster so when it gets to the cold water temp is it still freezes faster

It has been proven that hot water freezes faster than cold water.

Hot water freezes faster than cold water.

Hot water gets frozen faster than cold water dose. I just did the experiment and found that after awhile cold water freezes faster than hot water.

Cold water freezes faster, but if water is boiled and allowed to cool to the same temperature as cold water, the water that was boiled will freeze faster due to the absence of air bubbles in the water.

Cold water freezes faster because hot water has to cool down to the freezing temperature before it can freeze.

Usually not, but it is known that in some very special cases, hot water freezes faster.

hot water freezes the fastest because it evaporates and there is less water to freeze!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hot freezes faster. Doesn't sound like it makes sense does it? But it is one of those things. Check out this link below, one of many on the subject:

AnswerHot water doesn't freeze fasterAccording to www.sciensational.com, hot water freezes faster than cold water.But I do not have any idea about your question.lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

Actually hot water freezes faster then cold water this is known as the Mpemba effect. The effect was first observed by Aristotle in the 4th century BC.

I believe hot water freezes faster because it is supercooled. Cold water is non-supercooled. When cold water freezes ice crystals form and float to the top, forming a layer of ice over the top of the water, so the layer of ice stops evaporation . While the hot water, which is probably no longer hot in the freezer,when it does freeze, it freezes throughout, creating more or less of a slush before freezing solid.

Isn't cold water already cold? I would say cold water gets cold first. I've heard that hot water freezes faster than cold water.

If you mean, compared with cold water, it doesn't. Hot water has to cool down first, before it freezes.

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

Because the particles in the cold water are slower than the particles in hot water and they become slower and slower until it freezes.

Cold water. It doesn't have to cool as much as hot water does, thus it freezes faster. Under VERY specific labratory conditions, it can be made possible to have warmer water freeze faster, however, these conditions will not be present when you fill your ice tray. If you want ice, use cold water.

no because it takes longer for the molecules to slow down in hot water

Hot Ice Melts and Cold Water Freezes

Hotter water drop in temperature faster than cold water but the cold water will freeze first. The salty water comes last.
