When talk about winter , we always get the feeling of cold , snow etc. In summers when sun is shining with its full light we always demand some cold water or better called as ice cold water .

Some people used to say Drinks on the rocks because it is too hot . what we understand by this , Is ice hot or cold?

Lets understand the concept behind the hotness & coldness of ice. First of all you must know there are three types of processes according to heat change :

  1. Exothermic - Involving release of heat
  2. Endothermic - Involving absorption of heat
  3. No change of heat

If a substance release heat its surrounding will be hot but substance gets cool or low in energy  and If a substance absorb heat , substance become hot but its surrounding become cool.

Consider a glass full of hot water , glass become hot from out side due to release of heat , but milk become cool due to release of heat . In the same manner you might have been ever got an experience that after drinking cold water we feel more thirsty .

In case of ice , it absorb heat from surroundings . Hence we can say that surrounding of ICE always remain cool . But after the absorption of energy ice become HOT .Change  old believes and work on clearing of your concepts. Lets
