Best Answer

It may take any time depending on its mass and temperature as well as surrounding environmental temperature (other factors that may be involved are movement or surface area). Generally speaking, it takes less time to freeze as each of those three conditions is reduced (there is an odd area where really, really hot water freezes slightly faster than really hot water).

Be the scientist and try it out! If you put a bottle of warm water into a deep freeze at say minus 12°C it would take several hours for the water to chill then freeze, if you put the same bottle in a flask of liquid nitrogen it would freeze almost instantly.

There isn't a way to figure this out, We need to know:

1. How cold the freezer is.

2. How much water there is in the container
