What Is Ice’s Chemical Composition?

Ice has the same chemical composition as water, which is H2O, and is the solid form of water that is produced when liquid water freezes at a temperature of 0 degrees Celsius. Two hydrogen and one oxygen atoms make up the substance known as water.

Water is made up of three atoms that are covalently connected, which implies that their nuclei are drawn together by shared electrons. The oxygen atom is sandwiched between the two hydrogen atoms, and together they form a particular structure. The one oxygen atom and the two hydrogen atoms do not lie in a straight line. The hydrogen atom is angled near one another at around a 105 degree angle.
