A block of ice with the dimensions listed has a volume of 35ft^3. The density of ice at 32F is about 57.24 lb/ft^3. Multiplying the two together gives a mass of the ice of about 2003.4 lbs.

"The formulation of a problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill." - Albert Einstein Presumably you are asking about ice that is one half inch thick. The difficulty is that you have not provided the area of the ice you want to weigh. Obviously, a piece of ice that is one half inch thick, and one inch wide and one inch long, will weigh much less than a piece of ice that is one half inch thick, and ten feet wide and ten feet long.
