Hot water freezes faster than cold water?

  • This seems counter intuitive but it’s called the Mpemba effect. The name comes after a Tanzanian student Erasto Mpemba who told his teacher that a hot mixture of ice cream froze faster than a cold one. Scientists now believe this because the velocities of water particles have a specific disposition while they’re hot that allows them to freeze more readily. If proven correct, this finding could also have implications in daily life, like cooling down electronic devices.
