Answer:

I can think of a few:

Explanation:

  1. The volume of #H_2O# is decreased
  2. The potential energy of the #H_2O# is increased
  3. Heat must be absorbed for the ice to melt (endothermic)
  4. The space between #H_2O# molecules is increased
  5. The solid ice has turned into liquid #H_2O#
  6. Liquid water has greater entropy or disorder than ice
