I WHY DOES ICE FLOAT! /* /s Lighter Than Water No. 10 of ;t Serifs Watch for llirm rack Tuesday. Wafer weighs about 8.33 pounds to the U. S. gallon, and it is the standard by which all other substances are rated. We speak of the "specific gravity" of one thing or another, and this means that its weight is so much as compared to an equal volume of water. We have an example in the case of ice, which is LIGHTER than water. The specific gravity of water is 1.000, while ice is but 0.920. In freezing the water expands, forming a GREATER VOLUME. As indicated, however, ice occupies a space only 1-11th greater than water. Hence while ice floats only about l-9th of its volume appear* above the water. Wiilcr is your cheapest commodity.
