A slab of ice floats on a freshwater lake. What minimum volume must the slab have for a 45.0-kg woman to be able to stand on it without getting her feet wet?
Solution to 26E Step 1 of 2 Introduction For the women to remain perfectly floating above water, the combined weight of the water displaced by the woman and ice system should be equal to the buoyant force exerted by the water. This is according to Archimedes principle. Mass of the woman=45kg 3 Density of water=1000kg/m Density of ice=920 kg/m 3
