## Homework Statement

A rectangular block of ice 6 m on each side and 1.1 m thick floats in seawater. The density of the seawater is 1025 kg/m3. The density of ice is 917 kg/m3.

How high does the top of the ice block float above the water level???

please help!!!!!

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

1.1 x 917/1025 m = 984 cm (the amount of water displaced).

So, the ice sticks out of the water 1100-984 = 116cm = 1.16m

this is wrong though. sum1 please help!
