Question and answer
Q: As water gets colder, its density increases until it reaches “maximum density,” freezes, and starts decreasing in density. At what temperature does maximum density occur?
A: That all depends upon the substance of which you've measured the density. [ Water is unusual, since it has its maximum density at about 3.5C and the density of water increases as the temperature goes up or down from 3.5C. Most substances expand upon [ heating and therefore the volume will increase while the mass remains the same and therefore, the density will decrease. D = m / V ] ]

User: An example of how the water cycle affects weather is the occurrence of tsunamis. pollution of the Gulf Stream. effects of El Nino. formation of estuaries.
