Compare the Amount of Snow to Water

This works best with snow, though in some cases hail or sleet might also be used. Why was there less water? Snow flakes are made up of frozen water vapor. There are air molecules within the crystal. As the snow melts, the air molecules go back into the air.

You might want to try the experiment with different types of snow.
