At 25 °C, the density of water is 0.997 g/cm3, whereas the density of ice at — 10 °C is 0.917 g/cm3.(a) If a soft-drink can (volume = 250. mL) is filled completely with pure water at 25 °C and then frozen at - 10 °C, what volume does the ice occupy?(b) Can the ice be contained within the can?

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The volume of the ice at 0C has to be given.

Explanation

The volume of the ice at 0C is calculated as,

Given:Density of water =0.997g/cm3,Densityof ice = 0.917g/cm3.Volume (purewater) = 250mlMassofpurewater:_Mass= Density×Volume

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The possibility of ice present in the can has to be given.
