Answer to Question #1270 in Mechanics | Relativity for sara
A piece of ice is gently placed on the surface of water filled in a glass tumbler, so the water rises to the brim. What will happen to the level of water when the ice melts? Will the water overflow? If not, explain with reason.
Since, according the Archimedes law, the weight of displaced water is equal to the weight of a submerged body, when the ice melts, water level will remain the same.
