Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

One gram of ice. That's why ice cubes float in water.

Very profound, but true.

Since the 1 gram of ice, will be a little larger than one cubic centimeter, it can displace one gram of water ( 1 cc) and still keep it's head above water.

Whenanything floats, enough of it is underwater to displace its own weight and water and the rest of it is above water. Archimedes discovered this over 2000 years ago (well, he explained it and wrote it down). Everybody who ever built a boat figured it out too, but failed to write it down and get credit.

The question is what has more volume, not what weighs more!!
