# What happens to water when it reaches 0 degrees celsius?

At normal atmospheric pressure, water begins to freeze (turn into solid ice) at zero degrees centigrade.

ACTUALLY:

If saturation occurs at temperatures between 0 degrees Celsius and -4 degrees Celsius , the surplus water vapor invariably condenses into

SUPERCOOLED WATER(water having a temperature below the melting point of ice, but nonetheless existing in a liquid state).

Ice does not form within this range of temperatures. Wiki User

The freezing point of water is 0 degrees Celsius or 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsius or 212 degrees Fahrenheit. The conversion formulas: °F = °C × 9⁄5 + 32 °C = (°F − 32) × 5⁄9   Wiki User

Nothing, unless it is heated up or cooled down. Assuming it is pure water at 1 atm. pressure, heating it up will cause an increase in 1 degree Celsius of each 1 gram of water with the input of 1 calorie of heat. Two(2) calories of heat will increase the temp. of each 1 gram of water to 2 degrees Celsius and so on up to 100 degrees Celsius (water's boiling point at 1 atm. pressure). It requires the loss of 80 calories from each 1 gram of water at 0 degree Celsius to convert it to ice at 0 degrees Celsius.   Wiki User

That all depends on air pressure. At sea level, water will freeze at 0 degrees celsius. On a mountain or below sea level, the air pressure will be different and water may be in different states.   Wiki User

Assuming absolutely nothing else-- only that you have water at a stable and exact zero degrees Celsius with no further exchange of heat, then the water will remain water indefinitely.   Wiki User

Nothing much. Zero on the Fahrenheit scale is the freezing point of the saltiest solution that can be made; so almost always at 0 F any water is already ice.   Wiki User

Water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, and 0 degrees Celsius, when converted is 32 degrees Fahrenheit. if that gives a better explanation.   Wiki User

The freezing point of pure water is 0 0C.
Adding solutes in water the freezing point is lowered.   Wiki User
