Problem 56E

How does the combined volume of the billions and billions of hexagonal open spaces in the structures of ice crystals in a piece of ice compare with the portion of ice that floats above the waterline?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

when ice in a glass of ice water melts,the melting ice caves in and nicely fills the open spaces. The reason is the combined volume of all the billions and the billions of hexagonal ice crystals of a piece of ice is equal to the volume of the part of the ice that extends above water when ice floats. When the ice melts, the open spaces are filled in by the amount of ice that extends above the water level.
