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

the ice is floating,so net force is zero.
to get that net force, then
net force= weight of water displacedweight of iceberg
net force= 1.025( Vunder).92(800+Vunder)
solve for Vunder.
Vunder=.92*800/(1.025.92)
check that math
