In what range of temperature is the expansion of water anomalous?

A. +208°C to +212°C

B. -8O°C to -76°C

C. 0°C to +4°C

D. -4°C to 0°C

QUICK ANSWER…

C

DETAILS…  

Anomalous expansion of water is the unexpected decrease in volume of water as its temperature changes from °C to +4°C. After +4°C, the volume of water begins to increase with temperature as expected.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. A is not the right answer.
  2. B is incorrect.
  3. C is correct. anomalous expansion of water occurs between 0 to 4°C.
  4. D is incorrect.

KEY-POINTS…

You may please note this/these:

  • As ice is heated from 0 to 4°C, it is expected that its volume will increase and its density fall since its changing to liquid, but the reverse is usually observed.
  • This anomalous expansion stops at 4°C, and begins to behave as normally expected.
