The specific gravity of ice is 0.917, whereas that for seawater is 1.025. What fraction of an iceberg is above the surface of the water?

Consider V $$\displaystyle{m}^{{3}}$$ be the volume of iceberg. Its mass = Volume x density $$\displaystyle={V}\times{917}={917}\ {V}=$$ Mass of sea water displaced
