8.2 Melting and Freezing

Melting and Freezing (Textbook)

Melting and Freezing Water

When water freezes, energy is released. Conversely, energy is required to melt water by breaking the hydrogen bonds that hold water molecules in a crystalline structure known as ice. Duration: 9:22.

The Effects of Solutes in Water

Interesting things occur when solutes are added to water. Freezing is inhibited and temperature decreases. Practical applications can be had from these properties. Duration: 4:37.
