The freezing of water
Fletcher, Neville H.
The structure of the water molecule and the ways in which water molecules combine to
form ice and water are discussed and it is concluded that water is best pictured as consisting
of a mixture of molecules bonded into 'flickering clusters' together with a proportion
of non-bonded molecules. The structure changes which must occur on freezing are examined
and the theories of homogeneous and heterogeneous nucleation are outlined. It is concluded that, though a detailed understanding of the...[Show more]
