Which freezes faster Hot or cold water?

  1. Feb 9, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I need to find out which freezes faster--hot or cold water--without doing a lab. Just by thinking and considering laws and theories and properties we have learned about.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    It seems like it would be cold water since the hot water would have to catch up... But correct me if I am wrong.

    I didn't think I could put it in homework because it doesn't involve equations, but I got a warning so I did the best I could to repost and do it as the rules say.
