If same mass of liquid water and a piece of ice is taken, then why is the density of ice less than that of liquid water?
Since water expands on freezing, so the volume of ice for the same mass of water is more than water. In other words, density of ice is lower than water and hence ice floats on water.
As , thus for a substance with lower density, its mass is also less.
