Problem 60E

If cooling occurred at the bottom of a pond instead of at the surface, would the pond freeze from the bottom up? Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution: No, as ice formed, it would pop to the surface because it’s less dense than the water (assuming the ice wasn’t held too tightly to the bottom by say lakebed vegetation). So the lake would still freeze from the top down.
