### When water has physical changes does the density change?

Yes, we now know that the density of ice is less than that of
water. Ice takes up more space than water for a given weight. In
fact the density of ice is 7.65 pounds/gallon compared to 8.35
pounds/gallon for water. Therefore, one gallon of ice weighs 7.65
pounds, but 7.65 pounds of water is only 7.65/8.35 = 0.92 gallons
of water.
Gas also changes but as the tempature changes so does the
density.

### You have a 3 gallon pail and a 7 gallon pail how could you use these pails to put exactly 8 gallons of water in an aquarium?

Easy. Fill the 7gal pail to the full mark (7 Gallons) with
water. Then pour, from the 7 gallon pail, water into each of the 3
gallon pail up to the full mark. The remaining water left in the 7
gallon is 1 gallon. Pour this gallon into the aquarium. Fill the 7
gallon pail with water, again to the full mark, and then add to the
