If you freeze 8.35 lbs of water, you will have 8.35 lbs of ice. But you will get an extr 14 fl oz because ice is less dense than water. But because you are doing the weighings in air, the weight of the displaced air comes to play. It would then...
But all the same atoms are still there...they're just moving more slowly. So the water will still weigh the same amount when it's frozen, since it still has all of the same molecules that it started off with. -Tamara (published on 10/22/2007)
Water expands slightly when if freezes (due to hydrogen bonding) and the resulting ice is less dense than water.(Actually, the water still weighs the same- it just takes up more space when frozen ...
Frozen meat weighs more than thawed meat, because the water and other liquids emerge as the meat thaws. Some meat manufacturers include an absorbent surface inside the packaging to soak up this liquid so it does not spill when the consumer opens the package.
Best Answer: Trick question. If you take a liter of water a freeze it, it will weigh exactly as much as it did before, since you didn't add or remove any matter during the freezing process. Ice is less dense than water, though, so a liter of ice would weigh less than a liter of water.
Weight of a given mass doesn't change, so I assume you are referring to the change in density (the mass, and hence weight, of a given volume of a substance). Liquid water's density changes with temperature, so "when it is frozen' must be specified to refer to the change in density between liquid water at 0 degrees and solid ice at 0 degrees.
When water freezes, the changes seem dramatic, and yet the kind of matter remains the same - it's still water. While liquid water and frozen water have different names and some different properties, the kind of matter remains the same, and for a specific sample of water, the weight does not change.
It's true that a liter of water will have the same weight after it's frozen—but that isn't a liter of ice, because the water's volume increases when frozen. One liter of ice doesn't weigh the same as a liter of water; if you melt the liter of ice, you'll end up with less than a liter of water.
A friend and I were having an argument about what weighs more, a bucket of ice or a bucket of water. His argument: When I carry a bucket of water in one hand and a bucket of ice in the other from my car, I find that the water weighs more than the ice even though they are filled to the top.
