If I remember right from both 7th, 8th, and this year 9th Sciences, Densities
Ice (solid): 0.5
Water (liquid): 1.0
Vapor (gas): 0.5
Water is one of (if not the only) substance that is LESS dense in solid then
## ????!!!!! According to what you said, solid ice is as dense as water
## vapor????? It certainly goes against my direct instinct. I would dare to
## bet on anything that this is not right.
## Sigh... I think I need to dig out some hard data...
Lets say Antarctica was completely liquidized (the ice part, that is)-- all
would turn into water, but only take up half the space.
(Amazing what you can learn in just a few labs!)
## Well, only if the statement you have above is correct...
