1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
For my physics homework I'm supposed to make "5 intelligent and observant questions about the Mpemba effect." but I don't even know why it happens! Can anyone help me out?


2. Relevant equations



3. The attempt at a solution
 
AFAIK no one knows exactly why the Mpemba effect occurs. I suggest you try to come up with explanations and ways to test them,
