As liquid water freezes, the molecules arrange themselves in a way that takes up more space than liquid water. What would most likely occur if the arrangement of frozen water molecules required less space than that of liquid water molecules?

Liquid water would have a higher specific heat, making it less likely to undergo vaporization. The freezing point of water would decrease, making ice more diffi
