Places such as the mountains, where temperature get very low during winters, the plastic pipes meant for water transportation break. Why do you think it happens ?

Dear student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query

During winter, the water pipes contract while the water inside the pipe expands due to low temperature (freezing). The freezing and expansion of water exerts pressure on the pipes from inside and hence they break or burst.

Hope this information will clear your doubts about the breaking of water pipes.
