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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Solids 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You said gases do not have definite volume, right? Can they have a minimum volume?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The smaller volume increases the pressure and if the pressure is increased too much it could explode I'm pretty sure
