Solution: A 250-mL glass bottle was filled with water at 20°C and capped tightly. It was then placed in a refrigerator where the average temperature was -5°C. The next morning the glass bottle was found to have a crack due to the expansion of the liquid. Assuming the glass bottle did not change size upon cooling, calculate the minimum amount of water initially in the bottle that produced the crack.Density of water at 20°C = 0.998 g/cm 3.Density of ice at -5°C = 0.916 g/cm 3.a) 230-mLb) 247-mLc) 249.5-mLd) 212-mLe) 273-mL

Problem

A 250-mL glass bottle was filled with water at 20°C and capped tightly. It was then placed in a refrigerator where the average temperature was -5°C. The next morning the glass bottle was found to have a crack due to the expansion of the liquid. Assuming the glass bottle did not change size upon cooling, calculate the minimum amount of water initially in the bottle that produced the crack.

Density of water at 20°C = 0.998 g/cm 3.

Density of ice at -5°C = 0.916 g/cm 3.
