The density of the ice is 918kgm-3 and that of water is 1030kgm-3. An iceberg floats with a portion of 224 litre outside water. Find the volume of the iceberg.

  1. 918/1030 = 89.12%
    That means that 10.88% of the berg is showing.

    so, 224 = 0.1088v

  2. Here,
    First of all we will convert 224 litres into m³ as 1l = 1000m³
    = 224l = 224/1000 m³
    Now ,
    Density of iceberg = DVG
    density of water = dvg
    DVG = dvg
    918 × V= 1030×224/1000....(1)
    V= volume of iceberg
    From ...(1)
    0.25 m³....@nswer

  3. Vb = (918/1030)*V = V-224. = Vol. below surface.
    V = 2036 Liters.
