Ice and water are the same element

Posted by: Jeonsaryu

They use the same material, but does that mean they're the same in principal?

  • Ice is just a different form of water.

  • It is a matter of definition, and the way the author interprets it is not the same as in chemistry. So any of you voting "no" are simply confused.

  • if they're not in basic table of elements then they aren't elements and if they aren't elements then they definitely cannot be the same elements

  • 'Ice is made from water, and yet is colder than water.' (Xunzi 1.1)

  • Ice is the same the same as water but they are both compounds not elements (H2O). They are made up of one oxygen atom bonded to 2 hydrogen atoms. Why is this a poll its not something that can be debated its a fact.

  • Neither are elements so

  • Ice and water in games are differnt elements. Ice usally freezes opponenets and water is good against fire.

Actually, ice has different properties when compared to water. Some consider it a crystal, and it's the only element in its solid form that is less dense than its liquid form.

I was hoping I this didn't need a disclaimer, but this poll specifies ice and water being used as element(s) in magic.

To me they are the same because ice is just frozen water. That is why waterbenders in the Avatar series can bend/manipulate both.

Neither are elements, both are molecules

Neither are elements they are compounds, but in different forms. They have the same molecules, hydrogen and 2 oxygen. But ice is frozen.

ICE IS H2O (water) IN A SOLD STATE. WATER IS H2O(water) in a liquid state! Same thing just different average temperature. (Nether of them are elements).

Guys, he is talking about the fantasy realm of elements, not actual elements you normally study in chemistry. Elements like fire, air, water etc... Not the ones on the periodic table.

How do u know

Because he literally says it. - "this poll specifies ice and water being used as element(s) in magic."

Ehhhh, I think that is up to the writer to decide that.
