Heating up of water due to shaking

Share with:

Would shaking a bottle of chilled water, cause it to warm up, even slightly, due to some kind of friction?


Shaking BottleYes, This is due to friction (Viscous forces). The different layers of water resist relative motion and the work done in producing motion against the viscous force appears  as heat.
