Question: The greatest expansion of water occurs when: isn't it when it turns to ice?? The other answers are at 4C it gains temperature or at 4C it loses temperature. In the winter the pipes can break because the water in them freezes that's why I thought it was that. Thanks

    Why does the temperature remain constant around 0 degrees C and 100 degrees C? For what? For water when it is freezing or boiling? Or do you have another question in mind? Sorry, it's for water when it is freezing or boiling.
