Why does water expand when it is frozen?

Water behaves differently than almost all other liquids because it expands when it is frozen. As a liquid is cooled down the molecules move more slo ... ecules in a fixed position (they can still vibrate but not change their relative positions) and the liquid becomes a solid. The molecules in the solid have reached an optimum 'closeness' to each other ...
