What does freezing point of water mean?
Just so, what is the freezing point of the water?
Beside above, can water freeze at 4 degrees? Water is one of the few exceptions to this behavior. When liquid water is cooled, it contracts like one would expect until a temperature of approximately 4 degrees Celsius is reached. After that, it expands slightly until it reaches the freezing point, and then when it freezes it expands by approximately 9%.
Likewise, what is the difference between freezing and freezing point?
FREEZING POINT: The 'freezing point' of a substance is the level of temperature at which a 'liquid' is converted into 'solid'. In case of mixtures, the freezing point is comparatively lower than the boiling point. For example, the 'freezing point' of 'water' is 0 degree Celsius.
What affects the freezing point of water?
Changes in pressure can raise or lower the freezing point of a substance. Generally, pressures lower than 1 atmosphere lower the temperature at which a substance freezes, but for water, a higher pressure gives a lower freezing point.
