Main Question or Discussion Point

At a temperature of 0 C the density of ice and liquid water is 0.9187 g/cm3 and 0.9998g/cm3 respectively. Consider a situation where the density of ice is increased to more than 8.83% at 0 C, what would be the consequences of this to the life forms?

The life forms would vanish because of the change in density of ice?

Um... There seems to be something missing from your statement. Ice density increased to more than 8.83% of what at 0C? And in what circumstances would this be expected to have any effect on "the life forms?" There seems to be quite a bit of context missing here.

This looks like homework. Should go to the HW section.
