Which of the following best describes what happens to the molecules when you freeze a tray of liquid water.
  1. The molecules slow down constantly until they are simply vibrating next to each other
  2. The molecules speed up until they smash into each other and fuse together
  3. The molecules increase in mass until the are too crowded to move
