Heat Convection at the Density Maximum Point of Water
Balta, Nuri; Korganci, Nuri
Physics Education, v53 n1 Article 015008 Jan 2018
Water exhibits a maximum in density at normal pressure at around 4° degree temperature. This paper demonstrates that during cooling, at around 4 °C, the temperature remains constant for a while because of heat exchange associated with convective currents inside the water. Superficial approach implies it as a new anomaly of water, but actually it is not.
