Water is at maximum density at 4 degrees C. Under pressure, it will not go below 4 degrees because to do so it forms more hydrogen bonds and expands. If it is under pressure in a container at 4 degrees C, and that container is placed into a freezer at zero degrees (or less than 4 degrees C), the water could not go below that 4 degrees and therefore would be breaking the law (1st Law of Thermodynamics?) about heat travelling from a higher temperature to a lower temperature. This does not seem possible, so I wonder if it would be that there is NO container that could hold water and keep it from expanding or if it would be one of the alternative forms of ice that would be formed, or if it's just something I haven't thought of yet.
Re: Does water under pressure break the one of the laws about heat disbursal?
