Question

Explain how the peculiar variation of density of water with temperature can cause water— pipes to burst in very cold places.

Solution

The peculiar variation of density of water with temperature causes water—pipes to burst in very cold places, it happens due to expansion of water on freezing. The water inside the pipes gets frozen and expands, pressing the inner walls of the water-pipes, causing them to burst.
