Liquids adjust their shapes according to the containers they are poured into, and their volume remains the same no matter what shape they take to fill the containers. Liquids may turn into gases when they are heated and into solids when they are cooled. Liquid water that is heated to 212 degrees Fahrenheit turns into steam, which is a gas. In addition, liquid water that is cooled to 32 degrees Fahrenheit becomes ice.

  • Q:

    Why does water expand when it freezes?

    A:

    Water expands when it freezes because water molecules are not shaped like most other liquids. When water starts getting colder, the molecules move closer together, but the shape of the molecules means that there is a lot of empty space between them. This makes the water take up more space and expand as it freezes.
