If you can replace the word 'to' with 'also' it should be spelt 'too'.
Pretty basic but based on how many times you're and they're have already been spelled wrong ITT, some could use the help.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
Yep, takes all the histamine out for couple hours of relief.
right-away actually = right-of-way.
Only douche bags care about grammer on this message board...
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
If you could debunk the Herpes is contagious theory, you would open my whole world of prospects , under the current belief system the talent out there can not be trusted.
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
What? It's simple heat transfer. When you put two objects in contact (in this case the cold air in the freezer and the water), the heat transfer from the hot object to the cooler one happens faster when said objects' ambient temperatures are farther apart.

This one isn't true. Salt raises the boiling point of water and lowers it's freezing point. That means the water will take longer to boil, but the hot water will cook the pasta faster.
Also, put salt in your coolers if you want super cold beverages. The ice will melt a little bit, but the water will keep everything really chilly. If you put enough salt in, you'll notice a difference.
That's why rock salt is used when making ice-cream.
Nothing simple about it.
Let's say you're cooling 2 containers of water. One is at 5 degrees C, the other at 10 degrees C (random example). You stick each of them in a container of really cold fluid at -30 C.
You would expect the 5 degree C container to freeze first because that will only require half the energy of the 10 degree C container. But that's not what happens.

Tthe rate of heat transfer is the reason it happens that way.
That doesn't answer the entire question.
Go back to my example 30 seconds into the freezing process, let's say the 5 degree C container is down to 4 degrees C and the 10 degrees C container is down to 5 degrees C.
Now, you'd figure that the length of time to freeze the 10 degrees C container (now at 5 degree C) from this point in the experiment onward should be exactly the same as the total time to freeze the 5 degree C container. That means that you would expect the 5 degree C container to freeze 30 seconds faster than the 10 degree C container.
There's a good reason no one can figure out why this happens.
You are just throwing out numbers that may or may not be correct. I know I'm probably not explaining this well, but I remember this from a heat transfer class I took in college. The hotter fluid provides a better medium of heat transfer than the cooler one does.
Obviously, but they're meant to be illustrative. Here's the algebra version.
You have to containers, one at temperature X, one at temperature Y, where Y > X. You cool the containers. At some time t, where t > 0, the container at temperature Y will cool to temperature X.
Therefore, the time to freeze the container at temperature Y is the time to freeze the container at temperature X plus time t.
Good debate about.....ice?
I would like to know how to stop said airline tactics
may have something to do with internal energy. i remember in my thermodynamics class, i was mindblown when the teacher took 2 cans of coke, both at the same temp. one he submerged in ice. the other he simply laid it on top of the ice and constantly rotated the can. the rotating can cooled much more quickly than the one submerged in ice due to introducing energy

I understand this and if it were a linear relationship what you said above would hold true, but it is not a linear function.
(after my morning commute)
SLOW cars travel in the RIGHT LANES (on more than one lane of transit).
Faster traveling cars use the far LEFT LANE.
Freight trucks use the FAR RIGHT LANE.
Not true. It's a hyperbolic function, and you would still expect that even as the rate slows for container X, once container Y hits temperature X, it's rate of cooling will be equivalent.
The only assumption I'm making is that the cooling is starting temperature independent. Which must be false.
EDIT: Updated time independent to temperature independent.
This is not a scientific discussion thread, or a pet peeves thread.
Tell me some stuff that is going to change my life.
Georgia's mascot in 1892-94 was a goat, named "the goat". It wore a Black coat with the letters U.G. on the side. After victories they would kill the goat.... and eat it.
This concludes story time this a.m.
