Freezing water causes the volume to expand. Putting 9 milliliters of water through the freezing process leads to a volume of approximately 9.1 milliliters of ice. This is not a huge expansion, but it is significant enoug... More »

When water freezes, the molecules slow down and assume a fixed position, although not quite in the way that one might think. Water is made of molecules with two hydrogen atoms and an oxygen atom, but those molecules don'... More »

When you freeze fresh fruit, you preserve its color and flavor, stopping the ripening process when the fruit is at its best. However, freezing affects fruits’ texture, breaking down and softening meats because water expa... More » Food Food Storage Freezing Food

Properties of matter, defined by Education Portal, are divided into two groups: physical properties that include color, density, mass, boiling point, volume, solubility, malleability and temperature; and chemical propert... More »

In general, if ice and water have the same volume, then the ice weighs less. This is because ice is less dense than water and occupies more space. Therefore, a gallon of ice weighs less than a gallon of water. More »

The time it takes for water to freeze varies from several hours to a month, depending on the volume of water, its temperature and the temperature of the surrounding air. Water freezes when it reaches 32 degrees Fahrenhei... More »

How fast a liquid evaporates depends upon the type of liquid and the volume of the liquid, as well as how large the surface area upon which the liquid is spread. For example, if the same volume of water is placed in thre... More » Science Chemistry States of Matter
