conversion of ice to water .. metric or u.s. standard

How do you convert a volume of ice to a volume of water? Is there a standard conversion formula to do this? Thanks.

The mass is conserved, so you can look at the density in either state whuch is tabulated in the Handbook of Chemistry & Physics (published by CRC) or other reference books. In both states, the density is a function of temperature.

Also, when you get to icebergs, the density of sea water is different than fresh water.

But the volume of a given mass of ice is always greater than the same mass of liquid water; hence, ice floats.
