A piece of solid iron sinks in a container of molten iron. A piece of solid aluminum sinks in a container of molten aluminum. Why does a piece of solid water (ice) not sink in a container of “molten” (liquid) water? Explain, using molecular terms.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution Step 1 of 2 In case of Iron and aluminum, the density of the substance is more in case of solid state than in their liquid state. So when they are put into their liquids, due to high density; they both sinks in their respective liquids.
