it is estimated that it 90 percent of an iceberg's volume is below the surface, while only 10 percent is visible above the surface. for seawater with a density of 1025kg/m^3, estimate the density of the iceberg.
Fluid Mechanics -
Let V be the volume of the iceberg.
Let xi be the density of the iceberg
Let xw be the density of seawater.
Archimedes Principle states that:
iceberg mass = displaced water mass
xi*V = 0.90*V*xw
xi = 0.90*xw = 922.5 kg/m^3
