Fluid Mechanics : Ice cube melting and Surface Energy Que.

  1. May 11, 2010 #1
    I have a que.
    if a ice cube is placed in a container containing liq on which it is floating.
    then is it possible that after ice melts, water level rises in vessel in any particular case.

    Does heat evolves when water rises in a capillary. and how much heat is evolved in height of liq in capillary is h.

    Hoping for a explanation.
