Question

How have you encountered water in its different stages of matter over the last week? How do molecules behave in ice versus tap water? How are these behaviors similar, and how are they different in the three different forms of water? Why do these behaviors occur? 

 

What are some things you wonder about the different states of matter that were not addressed in the reading?
