Which freezes faster Hot or cold water?

  1. Feb 9, 2013 #1
    So this isn't homework, but it is for a class and I don't know how to go about this... I have to figure out if hot or cold water freezes faster. Any ideas?

    Why don't you do the experiment?

    Because I have to write about it and think about it, not do a lab on it. I just need some ideas and explanations.

    Then it is homework. Please repost in homework with an attempt.

    But in any case, it never hurts doing an experiment. After all, physics is an experimental science. The theory and explanations can be very nice and pretty, but it's the experiment that decides all.
