ice cubes, iceburgs. do they float or sink and that might answer your question

Ice cubes don't sink in water, as the density of an ice cube is less than the density of water.

Because some ice cubes are cooler than others. The ones that just have that awesomeness, sink.

If ice cubes sink in a liquid, we know that the density of the liquid is less than the density of the ice. The liquid does not have the buoyancy to support the ice and cause it to float.

They float, as ice is less dense than water.

No. Ice cubes will sink in pure alcohol, and will float lower in low-proof alcoholic beverages. This is because alcohol is less dense than ice.

They don't, ice cubes float in water. Unlike most substances the solid form of water is less dense than its liquid form causing it to float.

ice cubes that melt are called as melting ice cubes

because when water is frozen to make ice it expands, making it less dense and able to float

The colder ice cubes would take longer to melt than the hot ice cubes...

Ice is less dense than liquid water, so it floats. This is the same reason why ice cubes float in a glass of water.

No, water is more dense than ice cubes. That's why ice cubes always float.

well the ice cubes will disappear and the ice cubes make the water bigger because the ice cubes will melt into water!

Small ice cubes freeze faster given the same temperature and environment.

It depends on the size of the ice cubes and the surrounding temperature.

glaciers are the first ice cubes, so think about that one...

They are the same thing cubes &amp; blocks

Well, the general way of making ice cubes is filling ice cube trays with water and putting them in a freezer, or you can buy a fridge that has an ice cube machine to make ice cubes for you.
