Why density of ice is greater than water?
The density of ice is NOT greater than the density of water. When water freezes it expands, therefore the density decreases. This is easily observable because ice floats on water, therefore density of ice is less than the density of liquid water. ...
How does the density of water compare to that of an ice cube?
The density of liquid water is greater than the density of an ice cube. This is why ice floats on top of liquid water. ...

Do ice and water have the same density?
no. Density of ice is more than of water...we can understand from ice sinking in water drinks... Edited by Dr.J. : How is it possible for the density of ice to be more (greater) than that of liquid water if ice FLOATS on lakes and rivers? Clearly, the density of ice is LESS than that of liquid water. ...
Asked in Physics
Does the density of material change when the material expands?
Ice has expanded when it turned from water into ice. Ice floats. This shows that the density of the ice is less than water. ...

Is the density of iron more than the density of ice?
Yes, iron had a greater density than ice. Ice has a density of less than one (1.0) since it floats on water which has a density of 1.0. Solid iron sinks in water so it has a greater density. The density of iron is about 7.874 grams per cubic centimeter. ...
