13. The specific volume of water when heated from 0 °C –

A. decreases steadily

B. increases steadily

C. first increases and then decreases

D. first decreases and then increases

View Answer/Explanation

Correct Answer is D

We know water at 4 °C has maximum density and so minimum specific volume.

Hence, water on heating attains a minimum specific volume at 4 °C. On further heating i.e. above 4 °C specific volume increases.
