Seawater of average salinity freezes at about:
a. 32 degrees F
b. 0 degrees C
c. -2 degrees C
d. -10 degrees F
I think it's -2 degrees C but want to be sure. Please check for me. Thanks


That's right. The freezing temp of sea water is given in that last wikipedia reference I gave you. If I remember correctly it is -1.6 degrees so -2 would be the correct answer.
