Unit weight of water

$\gamma_{water} = 62.5 \, \text{ lb/ft}^3$

Unit weight of ice

$\gamma_{ice} = 92\% \, \gamma_{water}$

$\gamma_{ice} = 0.92(62.5)$

$\gamma_{ice} = 57.5 \, \text{ lb/ft}^3$

Volume of ice block

$V_{ice} = (24/12)^3$

$V_{ice} = 8 \, \text{ ft}^3$

Weight of 8 ft^{3} ice block

$W_{ice} = \gamma_{ice}V_{ice}$

$W_{ice} = 57.5(8)$

$W_{ice} = 460 \, \text{ lb}$ *answer*

## Where does the 12 in 24/12

Where does the 12 in 24/12 comes from??? im soooo confused

## It's because you need to

It's because you need to convert the inches to feet.
