When two ice cubes are kept in contact, they will attract each other, why?
Question Date: 2014-05-15
Answer 1:

Ice cubes don't so much attract each-other but they release water molecules into the water they're in or melt, and then part of the melting water refreezes, which means that ice cubes in contact can fuse together.
