    it will remain un changed, because it will melt, making more water, but some water will evaporate, making it unchanged.

  • Dude

    Close enough, Dude2.

    Remain unchanged is correct. Because when frozen, the ice cube displaces its weight. Evaporation has nothing to do with it.

    You’re today’s winner.

    increased because it melted

    Do you mind if I add this twist Dude? Or even better if you do :)

    What if the glass contained extremely salty water?

  • Dude

    Of course you may.

    Anybody?
