Hi, I was reading the files in your archives about the Mpemba effect and how hot water freezes faster than cold water due to the effects of evaporation. I could believe this perhaps for liquid water with wide differences in temperature (say 99C versus 30C), but certainly there must be a point where the colder water would freeze faster that warmer temperatured water. At what point, or at what sort of temperature difference between two containers of water would the cold water be the first one to freeze. Thanks for any help. Mike
