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.

The freezing point of alcohol is much lower (colder) than the freezing point of water. The freezing point of water is 0 Â°C, but the freezing point of ethanol is -114 Â°C.… See the Related Questions to the left for more information. think of density
because water is generally cold unless heated in a kettle. Coffee on the other hand is warm when you make it so if the water is colder to start with it will take less time to …freeze.
Because water is soluble, it evaporates at a much faster rate. Because of this, it also freezes at quite a quick rate.
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:)
At sea level, water does NOT freeze above 32 degrees. You've been misinformed.
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
because it dose not have any artificial color or any sugar,citric acid
Water does not freeze instantly..
The top water is always miserable, so when it freezes first, it leaves its life of misery quicker than the bottom water.
because soda(s) contain carbonation, which hold warm air in them therefore lowering the freezing temperature.
it freezes because the degrees of the coldness makes the degress of the normal temperature of the water be cold which makes thet water frozen cause of the chemicals and molecu…les the move fast but when it comes to coldness the molecules stop moving and freeze.
It does not freeze because it is zero degrees. It freezes because there is little enough heat in the surrounding atmosphere that the heat in the water radiates away, making it… a solid called "ice". When Gabriel Fahrenheit invented a thermometer to respond to heat fluctuations in the atmosphere, he recorded the water freezing at 32 degrees, based on his scale. Later, Anders Celsius came up with a more logical system, and invented a scale in which when water froze it would show "zero", and when it boiled, it would show 100.
Sprite has different ingredients that are more of a non acid thing, like sugar.
Cordial has sugar in it. Sugar and also liquids with sugar in them freeze much more slowly than those without.
Water expands when frozen thus widening the crack ever deeper and splits the asphalt's crack even more than before .
Because juice is mostly a solution of water, sugar, & other compounds. These other compounds added to water lowers the freezing point so it will freeze at a lower temperature …than pure water. Look up freezing point depression for more information.
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.
