Answer:

One difference is that when water goes from the liquid to the solid state it increases in volume.

Explanation:

Because as substances change from liquid to solid they lose kinetic energy the substances usually lose volume and become more dense. Water in contrast forms a hexagonal crystal that has greater volume and less density as a solid than the same mass of liquid water.
