WATCHING WATER FREEZE.
An Easy Way to Make the Growth of
Ice Crystals Visible.
It Is not commonly known thnt fresh
water may sometimes be "colder than
Ice" and that the growth of ice crystals
niH.v be made plainly visible. An in
teresting experiment to show this may
easily be made.
Fill a clean pint bot:le with distilled
water. Make a hole in the stopper
lar-e enough to let the thermometer
Ii;ss through it. The kind of ther
mometer used in physical laboratories
is most convenient. Insert the stop
per in tlie bot! and let the tliermoine
ter reach nearly to the bottom.
Pa- k snow or ice pud salt round the
bottle as you would pack an i.-e cream
freezer If the bottle is not jarred
the. temperature may be seen to drop
several degrees beiow the freezing
point without freezing the water.
If the stopper ami Thermometer are
now removed and a small piece of ice
free from any trace f salt is inserted
in 'he bottle and pushed down into the
wa'er crystals of ice may be seen to
shoot our in all directions frm it.
After tl'is experiment has '.leen tried
you will have some understanding of
the network of ice girders which is be
neath the ice coating of small ponds.
