Chapter 14, Problem 041 What fraction of the volume of an iceberg (density 917 kg/m3) would be visible if the iceberg floats in (a) the ocean (salt water, density 1024 kg/m3) and (b) in a river (fresh water, density 998 kg/m3)? (When salt water freezes to form ice, the salt is excluded. So, an iceberg could provide fresh water to a community.)

for visible fraction of ice (in terms of %)

(a) 100 - 89.55 = 10.45 %

(b) 100 - 91.88 = 8.12 %
