Ice water


Ice water

Ice water (sometimes spelled "ice-water") is ice and water placed together in a container.

In chemistry, this is generally used to act as cooling vessel. Table salt is sometimes added to induce melting of the ice and subsequent reduction of temperature down to about zero degrees Celsius.

In music, it can also refer to:
*Ice Water (song), a song from Cat Power's second album "Myra Lee"
*Ice Water (album), an album by guitarist Leo Kottke
*Ice Water Inc., a music group affiliated with the "Wu Tang Clan"
