    Ludwigshafen (ots) - Frozen water can be lots of fun. For example, if you have a pair of skates, you can perform elegant moves on the surface of solid-phase H2O. Or you can roll together the fluffy ice crystals that fall from the sky into a snowman. But drivers like it less. They much prefer water in its liquid phase. An internal combustion motor contains coolant - the liquid that carries excess warmth away from the engine when it's burning fuel. And if the coolant freezes when the temperature drops below zero degrees Celsius, then you have a serious problem. In entertaining episodes our Chemical Reporter answers questions of our Podcast listeners on Chemistry in our everyday life.
