Description The two independent methods of measurement of the mass of ice created at sudden solidification of supercooled water are described. One is based on the calorimetric measurement of heat that is necessary for melting the ice and the second interprets the volume change that accompanies the water freezing. Experimental results are compared with the simple theoretical calculation and possible systematic errors are discussed in detail and incorporated into the data evaluation.
