There is no answer to this question; it depends on a variety of issues, the biggest of which is the thickness of the ice. One square foot of one inch thick ice weighs significantly less than one square foot of one foot thick ice. The other factor involved is the density of the ice. The biggest factor here is the amount of air trapped in the ice. Temperature and air pressure can also affect ice density. The Dr. Math Forum addressed this issue in one of their postings. See the Web Links to the right for a link to their discussion.

How much does a cubic foot of ice weigh?

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.

How much does 1 cubic foot of crushed ice weigh?

It depends how small it is crushed and how tightly it's packed. The smaller it's crushed and more tightly it's packed, the heavier it is as there is more ice and less space between the pieces of ice. In the most finely crushed and firmly packed volumes of the frozen stuff, the cubic foot of crushed ice will approach being a solid block. A cubic foot of water weighs about 62.4 pounds. A solid block of ice of the same volume weighs about 57.5 pounds. A cubic foot of "normal" crushed ice might weigh 35 to 45 pound range. And it could weigh more or less.
