How much does ice weigh?
That depends! It depends on how much ice you have! If you have one kilogram of water, and then freeze it you will have one kilogram of ice. If you are thinking about density (how much volume one kilogram of ice occupies) then it expands as it freezes. 1 litre/gallon of ice weighs less than an identical volume of water. This is unusual because most solids are denser than the liquid phase. See link to Pierce College below for lots more info on water including a temperature/density graph for water/ice. This unusual density change between solid and liquid is important for life because it means ice floats on water. It means that a deep pond stays liquid at the bottom allowing fish to survive through a period when the air temperature is below freezing.

8.35 pounds. Because ice is a solid, technically you cannot measure ice usinggallon as the units. However, a gallon of water that has turned toice will have the same weight be…fore and after freezing. This willnot be true if the temperature is lowered even further or the iceis under pressure. At 4 degrees C, just before freezing, a gallon of water weighs 3.79kg or 8.35 pounds. ========= All the above do not take into account that water expands in volumeas it freezes (that is why Ice floats) thus if you started with agallon of water, you would have more than a gallon of ice. The density of ice is 0.9169, the density of water is 1.0 Therefore a gallon of Ice will weigh 7.5598405 pounds or 3470.4665grams, while a gallon of water weighs 8.245 pounds or 3785 grams.
Once cubic foot of water weighs 62lbs water expands 4% when frozen, so..... one cubic foot of water becomes 1.04 cubic feet of ice, so..... one cubic foot… of ice should weigh 59.52 lbs I surmized this by subtracting 4% from the weight of the water since 1.04 cubic feet of ice weighs the same as one cubic foot of water and because we only want the weight of one cubic foot of ice. 1water = 1.04Ice = 62lbs so (1.04Ice - 4%) = 1 Ice = 59.52 lbs Please, Check it yourself, I'm no mathematician.
That depends on how much ice is in the bag. A small bag that contains just a little bit of ice weighs very little, whereas a larger bag that contains a great deal of ice …weighs much more. At the convenience store, ice is commonly sold in bags of five pounds or ten pounds, but if you need some other weight of ice, you can easily add or remove ice from a bag, until the bag has exactly the weight that you require.
Your average hockey skate weighs approximately 2 pounds.This varies with make and size, You can also buy training weights to make your skates heavier.
Gallon is a unit of volume, Kg is a unit of weight (mass). 1 Gallon = 3.7854118 liters Considering a liter weighing 1 Kg (water for instance), then a gallon weighs 3.78541…18 Kg. Water weights 8.328 lbs. per gallon. since while freezing water expands slightly a gallon of ice will be just a few onces less or approximately 8 lbs.
It all depends on the size, material and maximum capacity of the bucket in question. It helps to be more specific with questions like these. a 2.5 (10 Qt.) bucket will weigh …about 20 lbs., a 5 gallon bucket about 40 lbs.
slightly less than 1 kg per liter. At 0 degrees Celsius water when freezing expands to 9.05 % greater volume than it's original volume at 0 degrees Celsius. The density of ic…e is .917 kg/l. (that is clear ice with no gas[air] inclusion).
Clear ice weighs about 7.6 lbs per gallon so 21 gallons would weigh about 160 lbs.
about 3.8 lbs for clear ice.
It all really depends on what size the bucket is that's holding the ice. You would have to find the capacity of the bucket first.
The density of ice at the freezing temperature is 0.9167 gm / cm 3 . There are 1 million cm 3 in 1 m 3 , so the massof ice in the m 3 is 916,700 grams = 916.7 kilograms. … On Earth, that mass weighs 8,990.1 newtons (2,021 pounds).
