Just because Ice and Snow are both solid forms of water, doesn’t make them the same.
Here is the difference between them:
WHAT IS SNOW?
Snow is the word for precipitation that falls as frozen water. A snowflake is made up of many tiny ice crystals stuck together, like raindrops, snowflakes begin as water vapour in a cloud. When a cloud is very cold this water vapour changes into ice crystals. Each snowflake is different and can contain up to 200 crystals.
WHAT IS ICE?
Ice is the word for solid water, no matter how or where it formed. Frost is ice just like ice cubes are ice.
SO WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM?
Snow is nothing but frozen atmospheric vapour which falls in winters on earth as light flakes whereas ice is simply frozen water.
