Ice at 0 Celsius appears cooler than Water at 0 Celsius. Why?
Asked by prakash.sanyasi | 29th Jul, 2019, 10:58: PM
Due to the more latent heat absorbed by ice as compare to water at same temperature, ice appears more colder than water.
The amount of heat energy required to by ice to change into water is latent heat of fusion and its value is 80 cal/g.
The specific heat capacity of water is 1 cal/gm per °C.
So ice absorbs more energy to increase its temperature than water at 0 °C.
