Caption: Frozen milk. Bottle of frozen milk, showing how water (milk's main constituent) expands when it freezes. The ice has forced the lid off and cracked the glass sides of the bottle. Water expands when it freezes because ice crystals have an open lattice structure which forces the molecules apart. This also makes ice less dense than water, allowing it to float on the liquid. Water freezes to ice at 0 degrees Celsius.
