friend of yours reads that the process of water freezing is exothermic. This friend tells you that this can’t be true because exothermic implies “hot,” and ice is cold. Is the process of water freezing exothermic? If so, explain this process so your friend can understand it. If not, explain why not.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

To determine if the process of freezing water is exothermic.

Concept Introduction:

When the energy is released in the chemical reaction in the form of heat and light energy it is known as exothermic reaction.

Explanation

While freezing the water, the molecules of water gives heat to the atmosphere. The liquid state of a compound changes to the solid state in the freezing process. For illustration let’s take water in the cup. The water inside the cups has many molecules where these small molecules are moving in a free state in the liquid state.

These small molecules produce very little amount of energy...
