I have about six ice trays in my freezer that I filled at 8:15 pm. Do you think they are solid cubes yet or am I drinking warm liquor the rest of the night?

Reesh, the site sounded pretty good, until I read the conclusion:

"So, if you took a tiny bit of really cold water in a glass, and put it outside on a cold day in Alaska, it would freeze a lot faster than a big glass of hot water outside on a cold day in Georgia."

I think the kid is even more confused now then ever before. I'm sure she understands the concept, but now no longer wants to have anything to do with water anymore.

Boon: I think by now that you have solid ice. Or at least close to it. It takes a good 3 to 4 hours for ice to freeze in a freezer if you used regular tap water; quicker if you used water that was already in the fridge.

To answer this question, fill your ice tray and stand there in front of the freezer and just watch it. Let us know when it freezes.

HAHA Jon! But I just went and checked. I got some solid cubes on the left. Some semi-solid cubes in the middlr, and pretty much water on the right. Now, here is the burp in what everyone is going to think. The compressor and vent that lets the cold air into the freezer is over the watery cubes. And it blows directly down , too.

The reason that the cubes over the compressor aren't ice is like doing this...

Take your hand and blow air on it. The closer you get to your mouth, the warmer it gets.

Actually, I have no clue what I'm talking about. And Reesh, I know it was a joke. Just being a smartass. :p

No, but I do have better things to do than wait for ice to freeze.

you'll be waiting quite a while!

next time; try watching WATER Freeze.

So, if you took a tiny bit of really cold water in a glass, and put it outside on a cold day in Alaska, it would freeze a lot faster than a big glass of hot water outside on a cold day in Georgia.


Ah, it all makes sense now.

The cubes that froze may have been in th back of the freezer while the ones who did not freeze may have been towrds the front. every time you open the door, it changes the temp drastically while the back of the freezer stays closer to the same temperature.

This is a question that can not be answered. We have no idea how cold it is in your freezer. Also, the purity of your water and atmospheric pressure also matter. As do the # of times you open the door, the starting temp of the water and what type of material the water is in and sitting on.

Well its simple; just answer these two Questions:

Q1: What is the Freezing Point of Water? [assume everything is fine, no tricks here]

Q2: What is the Melting Point of Water?

Extra Credit; What's the Temperature of a Slurpee?

Did you ever taste one of the Diet Slurpees?
They don't have the same consistency, I'm guessing the sugar solution freezes at a lower temp than the sugar substitutes.

Oh my apologies. Ignore the stuff in the Slurpee; imagine a mix of crushed ice and water in a cup or glass or whatever.

It would be 32 degrees F still. The water and the ice would be at the same temperature, just in different physical phases.
