There is a great deal of ice floating on the ocean near the north pole. If this ice were to melt due to global warming, what would happen to the level of the oceans?
A.Rise
B.Fall
C.Remain the same

water is slightly more dense than water, but when the ice melts it will have the same density.

I think the answer is rise, but am unsure. Please help and explain if you can.

  1. Here is a great experiment you can do right now:

    fill a glass 3/4 full of water, add ice cubes to the glass until full, put water with a spoon until the glass almost overflows (be careful). Wipe the side of the glass carefully of any water spilled. Now let the ice cubes melt, and see if the water level changed.

    Amazing. You will know more than many global experts.

  2. The answer is C. Think about it. Floating ice displaces an amount of water equal to the volume of water after the ice melts.
