B Cooling/heating temperature rate change

  1. Apr 16, 2016 #1
    Ok, so I could do an experiment on this first, but I decided to see if anyone knew beforehand. So basically my question is will different properties of the same temperature, exposed to the same temperature, cool/heat at the same rate? For example would a more viscous liquid cool as fast as less viscous liquid of the same temperature undergoing the same cooling? I could use other examples but I think you get the gist. Also, I would appreciate explanations instead of just "yes" or "no". I know my question is very broad, but I appreciate any replies. Thanks.

    I am still confused :/ I should mention that I have no knowledge in physics and very minimal in math. I am not super smart or anything either, just a very curious person lol.

    Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to explain any better that those links. Perhaps someone else here can.
