This observation is known as the Mpemba effect, names after Erasto Mpemba from Tanzania. Even though the effect had been known for years to layman such as plumbers and ice rink work- ers, the scientific community had not taken the claim seri- ously. But Mpemba, a high school student at the time, provoked a visiting physics professor to test his claim and to his surprise it held true. They published the results jointly in 1969. The Mpemba effect is only observed under certain con- ditions and there are many factors which can effect how quickly water cools. Conduction is often the biggest factor. Take two sim- ilar containers, one contain- ing cold water and the other & area subscribers & readers Douglas Clark Weekly Science Quiz containing an equal amount of hot water and place them both in the freezer. The hot container will melt any ice on the freezer shelf that it comes in contact with and refreeze as the container cools, creating a good ther- mal contact between the freezer shelf and the hot water container which will remove heat from the warm- er water more quickly. On the other hand, the cooler water container will just sit on the layer of poorly-con- ducting freezer frost, so it will take longer to cool down. This is a pretty good explanation but even if you control for it by insulating the contact points to the freezer you can still observe the effect. The explanation most- often cited is convection. As the warmer water rapidly cools at the surface, convec- tion currents will develop and create an uneven distri- soccer Tuesday, September 13, the game against the Fairmont Cardinals, the final score was 2-1 with Plum Creek Area los- ing the match.

More evaporation means less mass to freeze so it would cool faster. And while this is probably the biggest contributing factor it's not the only mechanism that drives the Mpemba effect, as not enough water would be lost to evaporation to account for the difference. Supercooling is another possible factor that contrib- utes to the phenomenon. Initially cooler water is thought to dip farther below 0C before freezing, but the mechanism for this is not well understood. Another factor could be the amount of dissolved gases which would be less in water that has been heated. But the most proba- ble conclusion is that there just isn't any single unique explanation as to why hot water sometimes cools more quickly than cold. 1) True or false: the Mpemba effect was unknown until 1963. 2) Hot water might cool more quickly if its container has good thermal contact with the surface it is resting on. This is called a) convection b) conduc" tion c) supercooling d) evaporation 3) Water that dips below 0C without freezing has experienced 4) True or false: The Mpemba effect is not always observed. 5) Currents that bring hotter water to the top with cooler water below is called Answeres page 8 Copyright (C) 2011 Weekly Science Quiz All rights reserved.
