Question

Why is ice at 273 K more effective in cooling than water at the same temperature?

Solution

Ice at 273 K has less energy than water (although both are at the same temperature). Water possesses the additional latent heat of fusion. Hence, at 273 K, ice is more effective in cooling than water.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
