How long does it take water to freeze?


How long does it take 350 ml of carbonated water to freeze?

350 ml of dasani bottled water to freeze?

and 350 ml of tap water to freeze?

they all started out at the temperature of 40-41 degrees F

which one will freeze fastest


they are freezing at them same temperature (-21 degrees C) and everything is all the same except the types of water, the containers are the same and everything

    Why don't you do your science experiment yourself?

    how long depends upon what the holding temp is.

    tap water is the least pure so will take the longest assuming all other factors are the same.

    dasani is purified with added chems.

    carbonated water will be the purest, but i do not know how to factor in the co2. i believe this would freeze the fastest, but due to expansion of the water, and the co2 "precipitating out", believe, without a pressure relief system, could stay liquid if the holding temp was 0 C,

    check with your stp tables to verify my assumptions. the chem i am comfortable with, but the physics worry me a little

    It all depends on the temperature differential.

    You need to make more specifications:

    Are they are all exposed to the same temperature?

    Are all in the same types of container?

    Are some of the containers insulated?

    How precise are your measurements and your measuring instruments?

    You start with a starting temperature variation of one degree

    (give or take depending on how you round your numbers.)

    Another thing that you need to take into consideration with the carbonated water (if it is in a sealed bottle) is the PRESSURE.
