Does the temperature of water effect of long it takes for it to freeze? I am going to measure how long it takes for water of different temperature to freeze. Some say that warmer water freezes quicker. This is something that I have questioned many times. The variables would be the temperature of the water and the time it takes for the water to freeze. I am going to measure this at home using my freezer. I am going to use paper cups to put the water into. The temperature of the water will be checked immediately before being put into the freezer. The temperature of the water and the time it was put into the freezer will be written on each cup.
