Problem: Water has a density of 0.997 g/cm3 at 25 oC; ice has a density of 0.917 g/cm3 at  -10 oC.If a soft-drink bottle whose volume is 1.60 L is completely filled with water and then frozen to  -10 oC, what volume does the ice occupy?

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Paesani's class at UCSD.

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to calculate the volume ice at -10 oC in a 1.60 L bottle filled previously filled with liquid water at 25 oC.


We go through the following steps to solve the problem. 

Step 1. Calculate the mass using the density of liquid water.

Step 2. Calculate the volume of ice using the density of ice.
