They weigh the same

In a sealed chamber with no loss of mass, five pounds of water plus sufficient heat will produce five pounds of steam. The mass of the water remains the same, regardless of its state. Freeze it, and you'd have five pounds of ice instead.

10 pounds of water (molten ice) = 1 imperial gallon. (at standard atmospheric pressure and temperature).

The volume of the block (slab ?) is (24-ft x 24-ft x 1/3-ft) = 192 cubic feet.We know that ice is slightly lighter than water ... that's why ice floats in water ...so we have to look up the density of ice before we can say what the slab weighs.In a quick search on-line, we found one source that gave the density of ice as 0.931,and another that said it's 0.917. (both relative to water) ... a difference of about 1.5% .So we know immediately that our answer is going to be only approximate, when we'redone spending as much effort on it as we care to.First ... the weight of the same volume of water, at 39Â° F (most dense) =11,983.9 pounds = 6 tons.Weight of the same volume of ice (using average of the two density figuresthat we found on-line) =11,071.3 pounds = 5.536 tons (rounded)

-- Ice melts. -- Water freezes. -- Ice and water can coexist at the same temperature in the same container.

== == Ice is frozen water, so the ice would weigh the same as the water that was applied to the surface during the " flooding process ". Water weighs about 8 pounds per gallon. One thousand gallons of water would weigh about 8,000 pounds.

four pounds

Since 1 gallon of water weighs approximately 8.34 pounds, a 5-gallon ice cube would weigh around 41.7 pounds, assuming it is made entirely of frozen water.

Two pints of water weigh about 2.33 pounds when frozen, which is equivalent to approximately 1.05 kilograms.

It depends how much water and how much ice you hae. if you have 1 ice cube and 6 cups of water, the water will weigh more. But, if you have 10 ice cubes and 1/4 cup of water the ice will weigh more.

They weigh the same

About 40 pounds.

An ice bottle is heavier than a water bottle because ice has a higher density than water. The same volume of ice will weigh more than the same volume of liquid water because ice molecules are more tightly packed together. When water freezes into ice, it expands and becomes more compact, leading to greater weight in the same space.

Ice weighs about 8.34 pounds per gallon, so 21 gallons of ice would weigh approximately 175 pounds.

500 ml of ice cream weighs approximately 1.1 pounds or 17.6 ounces.

It depends how small it is crushed and how tightly it's packed. The smaller it's crushed and more tightly it's packed, the heavier it is as there is more ice and less space between the pieces of ice. In the most finely crushed and firmly packed volumes of the frozen stuff, the cubic foot of crushed ice will approach being a solid block. A cubic foot of water weighs about 62.4 pounds. A solid block of ice of the same volume weighs about 57.5 pounds. A cubic foot of "normal" crushed ice might weigh 35 to 45 pound range. And it could weigh more or less.

Each gallon of liquid water weighs 8.33 pounds. When water freezes it expands slightly which means it would weigh slightly less, but this difference is negligible. This would mean, if there are 4 quarts in a gallon, that a quart of ice weighs about 2.1 pounds around...maybe just slightly less
