Q. 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 $rho_i = 0.917 ,g,cm^{-3}$ ?

In This post you will get answer of Q.
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
$rho_i = 0.917 ,g,cm^{-3}$ ?

Solution:

Let $V$ be the total volume of the iceberg and $V’$ of its volume be submerged into water

Floatation condition weight of iceberg = Weight of water displaced by submerged part by ice

$V rho_{i} g=V’ rho_{w} g $

$Rightarrow V’ / V=rho_{i} / rho_{w}$

$=0.917 / 1=0.917$
