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.

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.
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.
8.35 pounds. Because ice is a solid, technically you cannot measure ice using gallon as the units. However, a gallon of water that has turned to ice will have the same weight …before and after freezing. This will not be true if the temperature is lowered even further or the ice is under pressure. At 4 degrees C, just before freezing, a gallon of water weighs 3.79 kg or 8.35 pounds.
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.
Regular (full fat) Ice cream must weigh at least 4.5 pounds. Some will weigh more, typically higher priced brands.
2.66946 x 1015 metric tons Put another way, it weighs the same as 27,085,538,493 U.S. Naval aircraft carriers
As long as the same number of particles of water remain for both measurements, their mass will remain exactly the same.
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.

Answer: Ice has a density of 0.9167 g/cm³ at 0 °C 1 cubic foot of water weights 62.4 lb/cu.ft. Therefore 1 sq. ft. of ice weighs 62.4 x .9167 / 12 = 4.77 lb
The weight of one gallon of ice cubes is 3.785 kilograms. This is equal to 3,785 grams or 8.345 pounds or 8 pounds 5.526 ounces.
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).
