What is the boiling and freezing point of water in Celsius?
Correspondingly, what is the freezing point of a water?
Also Know, what is the freezing point of seawater in Celsius? The freezing point of seawater decreases as salt concentration increases. At typical salinity, it freezes at about −2 °C (28 °F).
Similarly one may ask, what is the boiling and freezing point of water in Kelvin?
The Kelvin degree is the same size as the Celsius degree; hence the two reference temperatures for Celsius, the freezing point of water (0°C), and the boiling point of water (100°C), correspond to 273.15°K and 373.15°K, respectively.
Why does water freeze?
Freezing happens when the molecules of a liquid get so cold that they slow down enough to hook onto each other, forming a solid crystal. For pure water, this happens at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, and unlike most other solids, ice expands and is actually less dense than water.
