Review Weather-10

When water freezes, it:

  1. Condenses

    No. Condensation happens when water vapor changes from a gas to a liquid.
  2. Contracts

    No. Water does not take up less space when it freezes.
  3. Expands

    Yes! Unlike most substances, water expands to take up more space when it freezes.
  4. Gains mass.

    No. Changing from one state to another does not cause a change in mass.
