Water Expansion

Here's something I wanted to post up since Friday, but really didn't have the time to do it.

This random thing popped up while I was swimming, and wondering about water expansion under the influence of heat.

Does water expand with increased heat? I think it does.
But how do you measure purely water expansion, without the influence of evaporation, and pressure, i.e. atmospheric or from any kind of container.

Pardon the lack of scientific knowledge. I just had to ask.

Perhaps I have other things to think about, but at the moment, I'm enjoying the ability to reconnect with randomness, as I draw my thoughts away from The Blackhole.

Water won't expand under heat la. It vapourise into vapour or steam(in boiling point). On the other hand, water will only expand when u freeze it. Thats why u see when water become ice, it takes more space than water.. Remember your A-level of the water phase diagram thingy?
