Problem 59E

If water had a lower specific heat capacity, would ponds be more likely to freeze or less likely to freeze?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution: Bodies of water would more likely freeze, because a lower specific heat capacity means more decrease in temperature as water loses energy and the water would be more readily cooled to the freezing point.
