Problem 110P

An iceberg has a volume of 8975 ft3. What is the mass in kilograms of the iceberg? The density of ice is 0.917 g/cm3.

Solution 110P :

Step 1:

Given, Volume of iceberg = 8975 ft3.

density of ice = 0.917 g/cm3.

Iceberg mass in kilograms = ?

Mass of Iceberg is :

= Volume of icebergdensity of ice.

Here the volume of iceberg is in ft3 and density is in g/cm3. So,let’s convert the volume in ft3 to cm3:

1 ft3 = 28316.8 cm3

Therefore, 8975 ft3 in cm3 is :

= 2.5414108 cm3.
