How much does water expand when it's frozen?
Asked by: Remi
Short Answer: by about 9% to 10%
Normally, things expand when heated and contract when cooled. Water is an exception
to this rule. Even though water does expand when heated and contract when cooled at
most temperatures, water expands when cooled and contracts when heated between 4
degrees Celsius and 0 degrees Celsius.
