1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An ice cube with many air bubbles is places in water, does the water level rise, sink, or stay the same when it melts? Does your answer change if the ice cube is filled with many grains of sand? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I'm not too positive for the ice cube with the air but i believe it will stay the same. I also believe the volume will stay the same if the ice cube had many grains of sand. What i'm confused about is I don't know if the ice cubes are floating or submerged so it must not be important to the question. But I would think it would be because an object floating will displace a volume of water equal to its weight and a submerged object will displace a volume of water equal to its volume. Can someone point a finger in the right direction. Thanks.
