DENSITY & VOLUME OF ICE AND WATER<br />
Frozen Water Is Less Dense Than Liquid Water<br />
As water freezes, its molecules form a latticework of hexagons that contain empty space. These hexagons cause water to expand 11% in volume. An ice cube is  in a container of water filled to the top. As it melts, the water level must become  lower.
