why ice at 0degree celcious cause more cooling effect than water at 0 degree Celsius


Answered by Anonymous
Ice at 0°C causes more cooling than water at 0°C because of the latent heat of fusion. The heat provided to ice gets used up in overcoming the force of attraction between the particles of ice whereas water, being liquid, already has enough spaces between its particles. So when you put ice on your hand, due to latent heat of fusion its temperature remains same for some time causing cooling effect, while water evaporates quickly causing no cooling effect.
I hope you find my answer helpful. Pls mark it as brainliest :)
