### 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.

### What are the units for measuring specific weight?

Specific weight is a substance's weight (not mass) per unit
volume. If you take a known volume of something -- say a cubic foot
of it -- and place it on a scale, you know how much it weighs per
cubic foot. So, let's say you have a cubic foot of water. Although
its weight will vary somewhat with temperature, its average SW is
about 62.4 pounds per cubic foot. Compare that to gasoline at 42.5
pounds per cubic foot and mercury at 847 pounds per cubic ft.

### What is the weight of one square foot of water?

The weight of one square foot of water is zero pounds. A square
foot is a measurement of area, not volume. Since a square foot has
no height, it is not possible to fit even a single hydrogen atom
inside a square foot.
The weight of a cubic foot of water (a cube with each side equal
to one foot) is about 62.42 pounds. The reason that I saw "about"
is because the density of water changes according to its
temperature, so that a cubic foot of water at 32 degrees Fahrenheit
will weigh 62.42 pounds, but at 212 degrees Fahrenheit a cubic foot
of water weighs 59.83 pounds.

### What is the formula to find weight of water per cubic feet?

There's no formula for the weight of a cubic foot of water, any
more than there's a
formula to calculate the weight of your best friend. You just
have to weigh them, or
look it up in a book, and then you know.
In the case of a cubic foot of water, it's pretty easy, because
if the water is pure
and the temperature and pressure are the same every time, then
every cubic foot
has the same weight.
" 621/2 pounds " is an easy number to
remember, and it's quite close.
