#### Explanation:

According to Archimedes principle,

Weight of iceberg = Bouyant Force

#"m"_i cancel"g" = "m"_w cancel"g"#

Here

#"m"_i =# Mass of iceberg#"m"_w =# Mass of water displaced

#"V"_i "d"_i = "V"_w "d"_w color(white)(..)[∵ "Mass = Volume × Density"]#

Volume of water displaced (

or

Volume of water displaced (

#"V"_i "d"_i = ("V"_i - "V") "d"_w#

#"V"_i "d"_i = "V"_i "d"_w - "V" "d"_w#
