  Pure water is filled into a container capable of infinite pressure without 
changing its volume. There is NO void volume, the water fills the container 
completely at STP. The container is then sealed and placed in an environment 
which is continually getting colder - down to 10 Kelvins. Will the water ever 
freeze? Thank you.
