If they were the same temperature then neither, they would both be the same warmth. the difference would be the energy they give off, the cup would have a lot less energy and would cool faster in a room with a lower temperature than it. the bath tub would cool a lot slower, and a lot more warm energy would be released into the air making the air around it a lot warmer than the small cup would. that is if infact the cup is a normal sized cup and the bath tub a normal size.

No. The molecules of hot water contain greater kinetic/thermodynamic energy.

Hot chocolate will stay warmer in a Styrofoam cup.

Molecules in warm water are moving faster than those in the colder water.

Cup your hands around it and breath out, your breath should warm it right up. Alternately, you could get a nose warmer at risk of looking, literally, like a clown.

Strictly speaking, heat is the total amount of thermal activity within a given volume. Temperature is the average amount of heat within a given volume. For example, a hot cup of coffee has a higher temperature than a bathtub full of warm water, but the tub of water contains more heat than the hot cup of coffee.

No. Boiling point is an intensive physical property, which means it does not matter how large the sample is.

We think that a Styrofoam cup will keep a drink warmer in a longer period of time.

The hot cup loses heat faster, but only until it becomes a warm cup itself. Then it loses heat as the warm cup did at the beginning. However, by this point, the hot cup is warm, but the warm cup is now cooler too. Therefore, the warm cup will still become room temperature first.

Yes because a tub of warm water has more and it's hotter because of how much comes out.

The result is increased temperature, condensation is a warming process. Like if you have an ice cold cup of water, as it gets warmer condensation forms on the outside of the cup...

Yes. Warm water can dissolve more sugar the cold water.

It is the Styrofoam cup as it is not a good conductor of heat but the metal cup is a good conductor of heat.

try tin foil cotton, aluminum foil, thermocol, and any other materials that keep water warm By:Rohan Nothing quite anything you might want to try a cup of water and cover it with a lid which will prevent your cup af water to stay warm for at least an hour. By- Dr. Chemicals

If you are filling up a dark coloured cup with water as opposed to a light coloured cup, the darker one would retain more heat which would in turn affect the water temperatures and make the water warmer.

It depends on the size/shape (length, width and depth OR circumference and depth) of the bathtub. Unless you provide measurements of the tub, it is impossible to answer this question. However for rough estimation, A standard Japanese bath contained about 500 L of water and a metric cup is 250 ml thus it would need around 2,000 cup of water to fill a bath tub. European bathtub would have similar volume of containment unless it is an order specifics tub.

The water evaporates and the warm water vapour condensed on the cooler surface of the cup, hence the water droplets is formed.

Plastic is the better insulator. So in a warm room, the plastic cup will prevent cold water from warming up as quickly as water in a metal cup. Provided its not one of those thermos mugs.

1 cup warm water 1 cup flour some salt food coloring
