A glass tumbler containing hot water is kept in the freezer compartment of a refrigerator (temperature < 0°C). If you could measure the temperature of the content of the tumbler, which of the following graphs (Fig.) would correctly represent the change in its temperature as a function of time.

temperature with respect to time
Graph (a) is the right answer because water will cool initially until its temperature reaches 0 °C. After reaching the freezing point (0 °C) temperature will remain constant until the water becomes ice. After that point temperature would decrease again.
