## Solved Problem 03 | Cube

**Problem 03**

What is the weight of a block of ice 24 in. by 24 in. by 24 in., if ice weighs 92 per cent as much as water, and water weighs 62.5 lb per cu. ft.?

**Solution 03**

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
