The density of ice is 0.92 g cm-3 & that of sea water is 1.025 g cm-3.Find total volume of an iceberg which floats with its volume 800 cm3 above water.


ANSWER:7809.5 cm3

  • PHYSICS -

    the ice is floating,so net force is zero.

    to get that net force, then
    net force= weight of water displaced-weight of iceberg
    net force= 1.025( Vunder)-.92(800+Vunder)
    solve for Vunder.

    Vunder=.92*800/(1.025-.92)

    check that math
