Water level change for melting ice cube

  1. Jun 25, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    http://imgur.com/Sk6YkIf .
    You can take Va to be volume of cavity and Di to be density and Vo to be volume of cube and A to be surface area of container and h to be height of liquid column and Vi to be volume of immerser part of cube. Prove if water level will rise or will remain same will decrease when ice melts ?
    2. Relevant equations
    weight= buoyant force as cube is floating

    Still very unclear. Try describing the set up in words, and stating the problem exactly.

    Calculate the weight of Vi (the water the ice cube is displacing).
