Experiments have been done in which one volume of water that is warmer than an identical volume of water freezes faster than the cooler volume.Since ice is an ordered structure compared to liquid water does this mean that the walls of the vessel containing the warmer water are able to interact with the water and order it quicker than the walls of a vessel containing colder water.Are the walls of the warmer vessel allowing some sort of adsorption process to occur more frequently than the walls of the cooler vessel?
Or is warm and more turbulent water able to shed heat faster?
