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 does water freeze after you shake it after being in the freezer?

  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

What does water freeze at?

It freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, or at 0 degrees Celsius at sea  level.

When does water freeze?

Answer For Celsius it is 0. It is 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

What is normal freezing point of water?

  pure water freezes at 0*c (32*f) The freezing point for water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit( 0Celsius) and the boiling point for water is 212 degrees Fahrenheit (100 Celsius)

Why sea water do not freeze?

The seawater does freeze. The freezing point of seawater depends upon it's salinity,which is the amount of salt that it contains. Open ocean seawater has a salinity of about 3

Why does water freeze faster then soda?

because soda(s) contain carbonation, which hold warm air in them therefore lowering the freezing temperature.

Why does river water not freeze to the bottom?

As water has the property of latent heat, it maintains its temperature in cold regions. but the surface water freezes because it in touch with atmosphere.

Why does water freeze and melt at 0 degrees celsius?

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

Why does water freeze faster than soda?

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:)

When water freezes it?

  When water freezes, the movement of the molecules in the liquid slows down....   Causing the water to become a solid..   In this case, it is called ICE.

How does the volume of water change when it freezes?

The volume of water changes when the water changes state from a liquid to a solid because of the formation of hydrogen bonds within it. The bonds, which are weak, are always p

Why does water freeze faster than dishwashing liquid?

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
