Alice and Michael are racing to finish making their ice cream for the annual ice-cream making competition. They both finished their ice cream mixes at the same time - whose ice cream do you think will freeze first ?
Did you guess it right? The fact is that the hot ice-cream mix will freeze faster than the cold ice-cream mix, assuming that both Alice and Michael used the same recipe for their ice cream mix.
In the early 1960s, a Tanzanian cookery student discovered that a hot ice cream mix freezes faster than a cold ice cream mix. This effect has been called the “Mpemba effect”, and until today, scientists have not been able to come up with a convincing explanation of why hot liquids freeze faster than cold liquids.
