Ice floats because it is
less dense, but just what is the density of water and ice? There are many simple
ways to find this density, but is it also possible to calculate it from using
molecular data files found on the Internet?
This project is only recommended for students with a strong background in chemistry.
Water and Ice:

Modeling, is one of the fastest growing fields in science. It may vary from building
and visualizing simple molecules (in 3-Dimensions) to performing complex computer
simulations on large protein molecules. Using various molecular modeling software,
one can visualize, rotate, manipulate, and optimize models on a computer display.
Although some calculations can be performed in a few seconds other calculations
on molecules, using even the largest computers, can take weeks or months to complete.

Ordinary Ice is also know as Ice
Ih. There are several other types
of ice found in nature. See if you can obtain their molecular structure and
calculate their density. Is the density the same for other types of ice? Make
your hypotheses and see if you are correct.
