For my science project I measured equal amounts of the above liquids in a tin muffin pan and put the pan into the freezer to see which one froze fastest. The results (from fastest to slowest) were water, milk, oj, wine and bleach. I think the reason water froze fastest is because the water is not mixed with other things, like the other four liquids are. But I can't find anything on line to support my reason. Can anyone help me with this? I also would like a suggestion for further experimentation - would it make any difference if I tested the liquids in a plastic container, instead of metal? I think I need to expand my project, but I'm not sure where to go from here. My science project is due next Monday, January 10. If you can answer me before this, thank you. If you can't, thank you anyway.
Re: Why does water freeze more quickly than wine, milk, bleach or orange juice?
