It depends on the variables of temperature and humidity.

Water evaporates from the wet cloth. Water needs energy (heat) to go from liquid to gas and the water gets that energy from it's immediate surroundings - in this case the cloth and the bottle - so the bottle cools. Only if the air is relatively cold and dry, of course. If it's raining, you won't get much cooling from evaporation.

If the bottle is just placed in cold water it is not being cooled due to evaporation and only gets as cold as the water. If the water is flowing and cold, it may readily cool the bottle faster and colder than the wet cloth. If it's just a small bucket of water, it may not cool the bottle much.

# Why is there water on the outside of a cold water bottle?

The difference in temperature from the cold water bottle and the slightly or drastically warmer air causes the humidity from the out side air to condense on the outside of the

# Explain why a bottle of warm cola produces more fizz when opened than does a bottle of cold cola?

When cola is cold, the gasses inside the bottle compress and movecloser together. When the cola is warm, the heat causes the gassesto expand, so that's why there is more fizz

# How do crush a bottle with ice and cold water?

As the water inside the bottle cools it uses less air pressure than the cool air outside. The results are crushing.

# When a bottle is cold why does the outside get wet after you leave it for a while?

This is due to condensation. The cold surface of the bottle condenses the water vapor in the air (humidity) into liquid water.

# Why does a bottle of warm soda produce more fizz when opened than does a bottle of cold soda?

# Why does a bottle of cold water sweats when is outside?

) the bottle does not sweat. Actually due to its coldness the water vapours in the atmosphere condenses and deposits on the bottle.

# Why does wrapping a bottle in a wet cloth at a picnic often produce a cooler bottle than placing the bottle in a bucket of cold water?

It depends on the variables of temperature and humidity. Water evaporates from the wet cloth. Water needs energy (heat) to go from liquid to gas and the water gets that ene

# Why is there water on a cold water bottle?

Warm air can hold more moisture (humidity) than cool air. Therefore, when the air cools off and the amount of moisture in the air is too high, some water separates out from th

# Why is water stored in earthen pot is cooler than water stored in glass bottle?

Provided the earthenware pot is UNGLAZED, the water inside the pot will seep through the pot making it damp on the outside. The dampness on the outside then evaporates and coo
