The calibration of the digital devices drifts. When calibrating some temperature probes for a neutrino experiment we used a deionized-water ice bath. The four laboratory digital thermometers we found (all claiming between $\pm 0.05$--$0.25\,^\circ \mathrm{C}$ accuracy) read between $-0.5$ and $+1.8\,^\circ\mathrm{C}$. Clearly some were well outside their ...

I have done some builded shots with Vodka and Ice in a -18 C degrees. And because I don't have fotos or links, I just tell you how it goes; 1. Put a bit water on a shot glas and let it freeze. -18 C 2. Put -18 C Vodka (I actually used Amaro del Capo) in the glass above the ice. -Let it stay. What happens? First, the vodka melts the ice and forms a snow ...

Warmer water will tend to bond faster but in a more disorganized fashion. Molecules at a temperature closer to the 'freezing' point will take more time to bond but the packing fraction will be more efficient. This is the same philosophy behind crystal manufacturing. The Bottom line is that under the same exact conditions warmer water will make ice faster ...

first of all ice made from hot water tends to freeze much earlier than water from cold water this is explained through Mpemba effect see this wikipeda article for more information https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mpemba_effect Although i want to clearly state you that this effect is still not accepted by mainstream scientists today and is still debated As far ...
