Does density have an effect on ice?

The density of ice is lower than the density of water; ice float on water.


Why does ice have a higher density than water?

Ice doesn't have a higher density than water, that is why it floats on top of water.


Why density of ice is greater than water?

The density of ice is NOT greater than the density of water. When water freezes it expands, therefore the density decreases. This is easily observable because ice floats on water, therefore density of ice is less than the density of liquid water.


Density list of ice and water and steam?

Most dense: Water Medium: Ice Least dense: Steam


Is the density of ice greater than the density of water?

Unlike most matter, the solid state of water actually has a lower density than its liquid state. Yes, the density of ice is greater than the density of water. The density of ice is less than that of the water because it freezes with air pockets between the crystal structure due to its polarity.


How does the density of water compare to that of an ice cube?

The density of liquid water is greater than the density of an ice cube. This is why ice floats on top of liquid water.



Do ice and water have the same density?

no. Density of ice is more than of water...we can understand from ice sinking in water drinks... Edited by Dr.J. : How is it possible for the density of ice to be more (greater) than that of liquid water if ice FLOATS on lakes and rivers? Clearly, the density of ice is LESS than that of liquid water.




What is an example of a density?

ice floating on top of water because water has more density than ice.


Why the density of water is more than ice?

water has more density as more minerals can dissolve in water than ice


How is water density affected by freezing?

The density of ice is lower than the density of water.


What is the density of water does the density of water change with varying amounts why or why not?

The density of water is about 1 g/cm3, and it varies with temperature, not amount. Water is most dense at 4 degrees C. Below that temperature, the density of water decreases, so that frozen (solid) water (ice) is less dense than liquid water. This is why ice floats on water.


When does water float and why does it float?

Water floats when it is in the solid phase, called ice. Ice floats because the density of ice is less than the density of water.


Does the density of material change when the material expands?

Ice has expanded when it turned from water into ice. Ice floats. This shows that the density of the ice is less than water.



Why do ice cubes sink but when you drink the water they rise to the top?

Ice cubes don't sink in water, as the density of an ice cube is less than the density of water.



What is the density of ice and water at 0 degrees Celsius?

Density of ice=0.9167 g/cm cubed Density of water=1.0 g/cm cubed




Why do a liquid water forms under the blade of ice skate?

because spesific density of ice is less than the density of water


What is the only substance that has a greater density as a liquid than a solid?

Water has higher density than ice. That is why ice floats on water.


Why do icecubes float in water?

The density of ice changes with the density of water after 0 0C
