Why does ice float ? Even though ice and water are both liquids, ice have less density so it flows while water has a higher density so it sinks.Even though ice and water is a form of liquid ice has less molecules than water. These molecules are called hydrogen bonding. These hydrogen bonding molecules in ice makes ice have less water molecules so ice floats. The hydrogen can not be broken down because there's not enough energy.That's why ice float on water even though they're both forms of liquid. Ice structures Ice is made from liquid (water) but it is actually a solid. Ice is made from water molecules which is two hydrogen and one oxygen. There's two types of Ice; hexagonal ice and ice cubes. Hexagonal ice cubes are hexagon shape.
