Problem 42E

Why is very cold ice “sticky”?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 42E When we touch a very cold ice piece, heat is transferred from our finger to the ice. So, the portion of ice that we touch may momentarily melt and then it again refreezes. While it refreezes, it condenses the water on our finger (gained through momentary melting of ice) and this condensation causes an attraction of our finger and the ice. This makes us feel “sticky”.
