Why is ice at 273K more effective in cooling than water at the same temperature?

Asked by Vishal kumar | 1 year ago |  332

Solution :-

Water at this temperature(273K) is less effective than ice as ice can readily form water through absorption of ambient heat energy as opposed to water which does not exhibit this property as it already possesses additional latent heat of fusion so does not require extra heat. Hence ice cools rapidly compared to water at the same temperature.
