Question

# A piece of ice is floating in a beaker containing water. When ice melts, the temperature falls from $$20^{\circ}{C}$$ to $$4^{\circ}{C}$$ and the level of water:

A
Remains unchanged
B
Falls
C
Rises
D
Change erratically

Solution

## The correct option is B FallsThe density of water is maximum at $$4^{\circ}C.$$ Let 'x' amount of ice has been melted. Then the volume of water at $$20^{\circ}C$$ displaced to float that 'x' amount of ice will be higher than the volume of water that has been gained after melting of ice as both volumeshave same masses 'x' but the density is higher at $$4^{\circ}C.$$ consequently, the water level fallsOption $$-B$$ is correct Physics
