The density of ice is 0.92g cm3 & that of sea water is 1.025g cm3.Find the total volume of an iceberg which floats with its volume 800cm3 above water?
ANSWER:7809.5cm3

Va = Vi  Vb,
Va = Vi  (Di/Dw)*Vi = 800 cm^3,
Vi  (0.92/1.025)Vi = 800,
Vi  0.898Vi = 800,
0.102Vi = 800,
Vi = 800 / 0.102 = 7843 cm^3. = Vol. of
ice.
Va = Vol. above water.
Vb = Vol. below water.
Di = Density of ice.
Dw = Density of water.
