EXPANSION OF FROZEN WATER CRACKS JAR<br />
1g Of Ice Has Greater Volume Than 1g Water<br />
In liquid water each molecule is hydrogen bonded to approximately 3.4 other water molecules. In ice each each molecule is hydrogen bonded to 4 other molecules. There is more space between the ice molecules so the structure takes up more space.
