Why does a cold bottle of water freeze when it is hit sharply against a counter?
The water is right at freezing, and when the bottle is hit, it increases then decreases the pressure rapidly, which results in a drop in temperture, which starts the freezing process.

Frozen Tower Water? . It would have to be awful cold for an awful long time for a water tower to freeze solid. The water is typically moving most of the time as it flows in and out. Water being pumped into the tower is going to be above freezing. And the large mass of water makes it pretty hard t…o get that cold. In colder climates, they may even have some sort of heating device, it only has to keep the water above freezing. And I'm sure the top edges get some freezing around them.. ASS yes it could, anything could happen!!! ( Full Answer )
Cold water will freeze first. Before hot water can freeze, it must dissipate its stored heat. Its stored heat is what makes it hot. Cold water does not have to do this before freezing.
It is very bad to freeze water bottles because some of the chemicals leak in to the water when they are melting after they are frozen. I do not recommend freezing your water bottle
Fill bottles to about 3/4 way to top. You must leave room for expansion. Tighten cap and place in freezer at least 6 hours before you need them.
It isn't bad to freeze them, unless you fill them up too high; water expands when it freezes, so just be sure to leave enough room towards the top to prevent the bottle from cracking open.
It all depends on the temperature of the air that it is in contactwith, the air has to be at least 0 degrees Celsius so you cannotwork out how quickly it will freeze without knowing the airtemperature ;)
It loses heat faster, and its temperature drops faster, but it takes more time to become solid.
Warm water does not freeze before cold water. This is simply amyth. The cooler the water, the less time it takes to cool down andfreeze.
Hot water freezes faster than cold water. Water molecules arecomposed of one oxygen atom bonded to two hydrogen molecules. Whenwater molecules come in close contact, a natural repulsion betweenthe molecules to stretch and store energy. As the water heats, thehydrogen bonds stretch as the water gets …less dense and themolecules move further apart. ( Full Answer )
What you do is you put a water bottle horizontally in your freezer for 2-4 hours if you open it and its frozen heat the water bottle to room temp. (forgot to mention that it is easier to do it when room temp) then once you find the time where its not frozen but very cold water you take it out very g…ently and make it vertical again like normal and then hit the bottom of the water bottle against a hard surface and watch it freeze. p.s.-it is best if the water bottle is unsealed if it is not them boil some water and put it in a bottle but it is not as good. ( Full Answer )
no this is just a rumor but make sure you are switching bottles every now and then because after a long period of time toxins from the plastic can get into your water so it is fine as long as you do not use the same bottle over a long period of time
If you throw a glass of water into the air when it is extremely cold can it freeze before it hits the ground?
In most conditions, no. Assuming you have the glass of watersitting at the same temperature as the outside environment, if theexternal temperature is low enough to be below freezing temperature(0 Celsius/32 Fahrenheit) then the water in the glass would alreadybe frozen before it was thrown. However…, let's assume the water is in an above-freezingenvironment, then quickly taken into a below-freezing environment,and thrown from the glass before it can freeze inside the glass.I've seen videos of this happening, and the flying water particlesdo indeed freeze in mid-air, however since the water is sodispersed in the air it doesn't turn into a chunk of ice like youmight expect, instead it turns into something resembling snow asit's thrown and flutters out in a cloud. From what I hear, for thisto happen it needs to be somewhere around -50 Fahrenheit. ( Full Answer )
Yes it is very safe. If you freeze water in a plastic bottle, the only thing that will happen is the water might be half freezes and half water. But most of it will be frozen I guarantee
Well, there are some plastic bottles that are said to leech chemicals into the water, but apart from that there's no extra risk added by the freezing.
because water freezes at 0 o C....so when the temperature is lower than that the water freezes.
The difference in temperature from the cold water bottle and the slightly or drastically warmer air causes the humidity from the out side air to condense on the outside of the cooler surface
Ice is less dense than water. It takes up approx 9% more space when it is frozen than in its liquid form. Therefore when the liquid in the bottle freezes it will break the bottle as it doesnt have enough room to expand in volume. This is not the case with spirits as alcohol does not freeze. It will …happen with all liquids that consist of a high level of water, ie wine, champagne,carbonated drinks. ( Full Answer )
Actually, when you freeze your bottle it is not bad for you, it is just a little rumor/gossip.
in order to cool something you cannot add cold, you can only remove heat. in order to freeze water, you must remove enough calories of heat energy from the water to bring it to 0 degrees celsius( 32 degrees fahrenheit) one calorie is the unit which increases the temperature of one gram (one cubi…c centimeter of water) of water by one degree celsius. so to answer the question it depends how quickly your cooling apparatus is removing the heat. you could theoretically freeze hot water as quickly as cold water if you used a better freezer on the hot water or put it in a colder place. If the location is constant for the hot water and the cold water, and they are being cooled at the same rate, then the cold water will freeze faster. When I'm going to make pasta on my stove, I take 190 degree water from the instant hot water tap and then put that on the stove, it boils much quicker than if I had put the cool tap water in the pot on the stove. same concept ( Full Answer )
no, but watch what plastic bottles you re-use... some plastic bottles breakdown over time and the chemicals release into the liquid inside
Water freezing in bottle when opened happens in the case ofsupercooled water. This water has been cooled below freezing pointwithout being crystallized.
I know about the freeze your bottle of water by shaking it or slamming it against a table but why and or how does it work?
It works if the water is supercooled, and the shock provides a nucleation site and a variance in pressure.
That depends on how fast it is moving and more importantly how turbulent the movement is.I have heard of white water rapids in a river freezing when it was -30Â°C for several weeks.
I think what you meant to ask was "Does cold water freeze faster than hot water?" It does because its temperature doesn't have to change as much.
As the water inside the bottle cools it uses less air pressure than the cool air outside. The results are crushing.
Your rabbit should not be kept in conditions where his water can freeze. Rabbits prefer much of the same temperatures that we do. In the wild, they burrow underground where the temperatures are much warmer than at the surface. Yes, your rabbit may survive freezing cold temps, but he will be incredib…ly miserable. Instead of worrying about the freezing water, find a way to bring your rabbit indoors when the weather turns cold. In fact, rabbits are easy to litterbox train and love to be in-doors. Perhaps consider making your bunny a house rabbit. Here's some information on house rabbits: http://www.rabbit.org/care/living-with-a-house-rabbit.html ( Full Answer )
Cold water freezes faster because hot water has to cool down to the freezing temperature before it can freeze.
Just freeze a water bottle, thaw it out. shake well and look at it in the sunlight at just the proper angle (it's a bit tricky) you will see lots of small bits of plastic swirling around, looks like very small air bubbles but will fall to the bottom of bottle, so it can't be air. I have even tried t…aking water out of bottle before freezing. Plastic particles every time. ( Full Answer )
So-so. The thing is that when water turns to ice it swells, so if you have it in a closed container you run the risk of the container bursting.
Well, it does NOT. Because hot water has to cool down first from 45-100 o C back to 0 o C and cold water only from 15-5 o C back to 0 o C. This means that 3 to 20 times more energy (heat) has to be transferred to a cooling agent (of less than 0 o C). In practice however a lot of disturbing influe…nces might occur. Even for the so-called Mpemba Effect there is no scientific explanation at all, though the observation has been verified. The (wikipedia) article gives the optimal conditions for the experiment.

30 to 35 degrees and below (the scientists think there is an exact, but there really isn't :D) 32 degrees F
Fresh water freezes At 32Â° F 0Â°C If you had water saturated with as much salt as it could hold the freezing Temperature would be Around -21Â°C -6Â°F The reason this is mentioned is to take into account sea water. And Even then you should look up a salinity psu chart to Figure out mor…e exact temperature's according to the salinity of the water. ( Full Answer )
32 degrees Fahrenheit. to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, double it and add 32, it works roughly.
the water turns into ice, just like it would have if it froze in a glass bottle or an aluminum can. While the water is turning to ice it is turning to ice the bottle will expand because a solid takes up more room than a liquid.
) the bottle does not sweat. Actually due to its coldness the water vapours in the atmosphere condenses and deposits on the bottle.
well, pretty cold, i quess. i would think 32. Just like reqular water. if you leave the hot water outside it will eventually cool and freeze
The boiling water cools and the freezing water warms up until they are both at the same temperature.
this is because the salt inside the water will freeze faster causing the water to freeze with it. hope this helps and if it does please recommend me. if you have any questions or other things you want to know just send me a message and i will try my best to answer it.
-43.6 Degrees Fahrenheit. Generally speaking, however, ice will either melt or freeze at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
Warm air can hold more moisture (humidity) than cool air. Therefore, when the air cools off and the amount of moisture in the air is too high, some water separates out from the air. This is why dew falls on a cool summer night or we get a frost some winter evenings. The water bottle example is th…e same process, but smaller scale. The air cools off right next to the cold bottle, and cannot hold as much humidity. So, like dew on the ground, you get condensation ("sweat") on the outside of your water bottle. ( Full Answer )
Water everywhere on earth freezes at 32 degrees F -- 0 degrees C. Around Antarctica, however, the minerals in the Southern Ocean sea water can deter freezing to about 28 degrees F.
Because the enzymes in freeze with the cold and move a little bit but not much
It depends on the pressure. At normal atmospheric pressure, the melting point of water is about 273.15 K.
Because of the impurities it contains; there are fare more 'seeds' on which ice crystals can form. ------------------------------------ 1. The difference in the freezing points is quite nonimportant. 2. Also a bottled mineral water contain more impurities than a tap water from a controlled and… sure source. ( Full Answer )
the source is constantly in motion friction heat is iven of prevent vander waal forces
If the temperature is below freezing a water supply will freeze in the cold weather. The water will not freeze if the temperature is 32 degrees or more.
Yes, I do it all the time when I am going to be out all day and want something cold to drink, but have no where to keep it cold. If you freeze it the night before you can drink it as it melts and it is good and cold.
If you put too much water in the bottle it with over flow when it freezes, as water expands when it freezes. Also, as the bottle is plastic it could easily crack
Yes you can I have it on good authority that you can freeze anything. You can even freeze your posterior off in really cold weather. So be careful!
if the bottle has water in it you can freeze it but not for too long other wise it eill explode and the bottle will be stretched due to the particles in the water and is turning into a solid.
