Have you forgotten this?
OK, we take a simple approach, for it seems that too many scientists can’t distinguish between mass and weight, and liquid squeezed when the body (mass) is in water.
Not to mention that ice properties seems forgotten, by them. That is IF they ever learned what the teacher taught when teaching these basic knowledge.
That the Wikepedia and other unauthorized encyclopedias online can not distinguish between mass and weight, is in itself deplorable. The researchers who speaks about a possible climate impact of CO2 may be right that the Arctic ice melt (the later is true. not the former.) is outrageous!
Weight is a commonly used name, but really no physical term. Massa, measured in kilograms, is the amount of matter that a property has. If we consider the same mass on Earth and then on the moon, then the wave will show less ‘weight’ (in reality mass) on the moon. Why?
This is where the weight comes in. Gravity is gravity effects on an object / item. Thus, the weight is a measure of a force. Therefore weight is measured in Newton.
So over to the Archimedes principle: the volume of the fluid squeezed / pushed away by an object / objects, wholly or partially submerged in water corresponds to the part of the subject / object’s volume is immersed in the liquid. For more information see the Encyclopedia Brittanica on the Archimedes principle
So for the most basic knowledge needed. Which also the so Climate scientists should know. (Haven’t they ever seen an ICE-cub melting in a drink glass?) First, may I introduce the concept of density. It doesn’t seem that the so-called. researchers have a idea of what it means for ICEBERGS in water …. I am not here to show the chaotic perceptions of water density as one of our Swedish weatherman managed to mix up … … I just laugh J 😉
Density is a physical quantity that tells a lot about a substance / an object’s density. In the case of water it is not at 0 degrees C but at 4 C as the water has its greatest importance. The density of water varies for different water types and the same mass considering that liquid water, ice and steam. At 4 ° C, water’s density is 1.000 g cm-3. The density of ice is roughly 0.917 g cm-3. Which means that the volume of a ice-‘mass’ is greater than the same volume when the water is melting … So the researchers who discussed this at the Ministerial Conference in Tromsø all seem to be trained in Swedish ‘groundschool’ school the last 30 years!
