Best Answer

The ice is de-condensed, it gets warmer, and it fills out a larger area.

Does freezing gain thermal energy?

Yes. When ice is converted to water, thermal energy is required. When the water is converted back to ice, the same amount of thermal energy is released.

Can salt water be changed into freshed water?

Salt water can be converted to fresh water by freezing and removing the ice crystals, distillation or by reverse osmosis.

Why ice cannot be converted into equal volume of water?

B/c that's how water works. When locked into the latticework of ice crystals, the volume gets greater than for the same amount of water molecules in liquid state.

Why the size is not reduced when the water is converted into ice?

Water has the unique property of its maximum density being at 4ºC, so further cooling to ice expands it again. A unique but fundamentally important property, for if ice was denser than water, the polar seas, and inland water bodies, could freeze solid.

Is liquid water denser than ice?

Yes. Because it has been observed that, when same mass of water is converted into ice, the volume increases up to nearly 1/11 th of that of the water. As density=mass/volume, so density is inversely proportional to volume. Simple experimental demonstration: -- Drop ice in water. -- Ice floats in the water. -- Ice must be less dense than the water, else it would sink. QED

Is Dry ice a pure substance?

there is a phase change that is water(liquid) is converted into ice now the question arrives that it is a pure substance or not? if its chemical composition is the same during the phase change then it is a pure substance otherwise not.

Does dry ice turn in to water?

Solid Carbondioxide is called Dry ice.It is not converted into liquid but it is converted only into gas because Carbondioxide is high pressure and high temp it is converted into a superliquid.this super liquid not a real liquid.

Which physical quantity changes when ice is converted into water?

Examples: volume, density, thermal conductivity, hardness, compressibility etc.

How are the characteristic properties of a piece of ice are different from its other properties?

The other properties of ice are water a liquid state and water vapor a gas state. So from what I've just said I think you can figure the rest out.

What part of an ice floats on water?

Let V be the volume of the ice cube and U be the volume of the cube immersed in water density of water at 4oC = 0.998 g/cm³ density of ice at 0oC = 0.917 g/cm³ Weight of the ice cube = volume * density * g = 0.917*V*g [N] Buoyancy on the ice cube = volume * density * g = 0.988*U*g [N] Apply Newton's 3rd Law of Motion to the floating ice cube: 0.917*V*g = 0.988*U*g U/V = 0.928 = 92.8% Hence, 92.8% of the ice cube is immersed in water, or 7.2% of the ice cube is above water. The answer in percent can be converted to a fraction as follows: 7.2/100. =========================
