A doctor uses an ice pad to bring fever down instead of using water at 0 degree celsius because ice at 0 degree celsius is colder than water at 0 degree celsisus. This is because water particles have more kinetic energy in the form of latent heat. Therefore, ice is more effective in cooling

Doctor prefers to use ice instead of water because ice absorbs a high amount of heat to melt and has more potential to bring the temperature down.

because ice absorbs more energy from our forehead surface than water because it qalso take energy for phase transformation

this happens because the particles of water are warmer than ice because of the latent heat present in water which is absent in ice.

It is because if we put 0-degree water on our head our head will start paining because of immediate change in temperature.
