In Africa, if you drop a steel ball weighing five pounds from a height of 5 feet, will it fall more rapidly through water at 20 degrees Fahrenheit or water at 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Or will it make no difference?

Water at 20°F is ice so it wouldn't go far deep before stopping completely while at 40°F it's liquid so the ball won't have any problem falling through it.
