Iceberg floats in water with part of it submerged. What is the fraction of the volume of iceberg submerged, if the density of ice is ρ, = 0.917 g ${{cm}^{3}}$

# Iceberg floats in water with part of it submerged

Given, density of ice (p, ) = 0.917 g/ ${{cm}^{3}}$

Density of water = 1 g/ ${{cm}^{3}}$

Let V be the total volume of the iceberg and V’ of its volume be submerged in water.

In floating condition,

Weight of the iceberg = Weight of the water displaced by the submerged part by ice
