Density Of Ice

The density of solid water, unlike most molecules, is less than that of its liquid form. Its precise value is of use in many applications. Freezing a spherical droplet of water and analyzing the changed shape from a sphere to a sphere with a slight peak in order to find the density of ice. We find the density of ice to be at 0.90 ± 1.66 · 106 g/mL. The precision of our measurement was limited by uncertainty in the angle measurements of the peak of the droplet.
