The vast majority of liquids don't increase upon freezing, yet instead contract. Water is one noteworthy exception. The factor for this is the binding that form between the water molecules once it from ice. They force the water molecules right into a specific tetrahedral plan which spaces the molecule a little further part than when they were as soon as the water was in the liquid state.
