Let's say I fill up an empty cup of water 3/4 of the way, and then I pour enough ice cubes to fill the cup completely. If I let the ice melt, will the cup be completely filled with water? Assuming we don't lose water as form of vapour.

Solids and liquids take up a specific volume that does not change, gases have no definete volume. Assuming that we aren't losing any to water vapour and we aren't gaining anything either, what do you think?

are you telling me a solid will displace it's volume when put in water?

I say it will be completely filled. after melting.

ignore that icecube- volume thing

The volume of the ice cubes will have the same volume of the ice cubes that melted assuming that we aren't losing any to water vapour

You said gases do not have definite volume, right? Can they have a minimum volume?

Solids have a definete shape and volume, liquids have a definete volume but not shape, gases have no definete shape or volume Gases fill whatever container they are in

The smaller volume increases the pressure and if the pressure is increased too much it could explode I'm pretty sure
