Why does water freeze?
The reason water freezes is that as heat energy leaves the water, the water molecules move more slowly. Ice crystals begin to form a solid lattice with higher cohesion between molecules. If the ice is reheated, it will lose its lattice structure and resume liquid form.

Why Water Freezes at 32 Degrees F ( or does it? ) The bottom line is that 32 degrees F is not the magic number you have been told. Why? Because ice and water can exist… together indefinitely, in perfect equilibrium. Ambient temperature has to be colder than 32 F to freeze water, and warmer than that to melt ice. A phase change occurs AT 32F but not IN 32F. If you put a glass of distilled water and another glass of ice made of distilled water inside a 32F refrigerator, would the water freeze while the ice melted? That doesn't make sense, does it. They would both remain as they are indefinitely.
Supercooling occurs because, contrary to popular belief, water can exist as a liquid below its natural freezing point if it has no surface or seed on which to crystalize…. That is, if there is no rough surface, impurtiy, or bit of ice to start the crystalization process, water can remain in a liquid state below 0deg Celsius. The inside of a smooth plastic bottle could possibly provide the right environment for this. When it is poured out, however, it encounters something in the bowl that it can form crystals on, and the process begins. Thus, you see the supercooled liquid water pouring out and forming ice instantly when it hits already formed ice crystals, hence the strange "snaking" up of the ice slush. It doesn't all freeze (thus slush, not solid ice) because when water does freeze, it releases some heat in the process of crystalization (there is more energy present in water at 0deg than in ice at 0deg), and this probably raises some of the surrounding water to above 0 degrees.
It freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, or at 0 degrees Celsius at sea level.
Because water is soluble, it evaporates at a much faster rate. Because of this, it also freezes at quite a quick rate.
Answer For Celsius it is 0. It is 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
At sea level, water does NOT freeze above 32 degrees. You've been misinformed.
Water exists in three states. The states are solid, liquid, and vapor. The difference between the states is the amount of HEAT the water contains, not the temperature. The hea…t that is required to change the state of water from a solid (ice) to a liquid (water) is called the latent heat of fusion. The latent heat of fusion for water is 79.72 calories per gram. What this says is that if you take one gram of ice at Oo C and add 79.72 calories of heat the water will change state from a solid to a liquid and will be at exactly the same temperature, 0O C when the change is complete. The additional 79.72 calories that change the state of the water from solid to liquid are called the latent heat of fusion. From this point on, the gram of water will increase in temperature by one degree C for every 79.72 calories of heat added. As the temperature increases so does molecular activity. When the water temperature of the one gram reaches 100o C the water temperature stops rising as you add heat. Once the temperature has reached 100o C you must add 540 calories of heat to see any change. As soon as you have added the 540 calories the water changes from a liquid to a vapor (steam) and the steam is at the temperature of 100O C. Those 540 additional calories that changed the state of the water from liquid to vapor are called the latent heat of vaporization. If you remove vapor from the vicinity of the liquid that produced it then you can continue to add as much heat as you want. Adding more heat causes the vapor to become superheated. However, there will be no more changes of state. The vapor will simply contain more energy. The molecules within water become less active as the temperature decreases. Once the temperature reaches below 0˚C (32˚F), water will start to freeze, because this is the freezing point of water. Because the molecules are not moving as much within the water now, the water will become frozen, since the molecules are not free moving. The molecules now vibrate within place rather than shift freely, bumping into each other as it would if it were still a liquid.
because soda(s) contain carbonation, which hold warm air in them therefore lowering the freezing temperature.
cause it gets to cold
It depends what other liquids there are. If the other liquid is less dense, then the other liquid will freeze faster, otherwise, water would freeze faster.
For ice to melt it must absorb heat energy to break down the molecular lattice structure. For water to freeze it must be able to lose heat energy. So whether the water is melt…ing at 0o or freezing at oC depends on whether the surrounding temperature is higher or lower than zero.
because soda is carbonated and carbonation creates energy so if water doesn't have carbonation it doesn't have energy and energy makes liquids go slow:)
because it dose not have any artificial color or any sugar,citric acid
Colligative properties. Specifically, freezing point depression. Almost everything freezes at a lower temperature when it's impure than when it's pure.
because water is very usual and most known to freeze i hope i helped you i go to village elementary ms.jones skinny ms.jones
The dishwashing liquid cannot freeze, only the water and other liquids that are solvents, which will solidify at a given temperature. However, water that contains solutes (o…ther substances in solution) freezes at a lower temperature than pure water. The reason is most simply explained by saying that the molecules of other substances "get in the way" of water molecules that are trying to form ice crystals as they are cooled (usually by colder air).
Water does not freeze at 32 degrees Celsius, on the Celsius scale the freezing point of water is zero degrees Celsius. 32 is the freezing point of water measured in Fahren…heit.
