Answer:

The volume of liquid water at 0 °C is #"4.68 mL"#, and the volume of ice at 0 °C is #"5.10 cm"^3#.

Explanation:

At 0 °C, water can be a liquid or a solid.

Liquid water at 0 °C

The density of liquid water at 0 °C is #"0.9998 g/mL"#.

The volume is given by

#4.68 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g"))) × "1 mL"/(0.9998 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g")))) = "4.68 mL"#.

Ice at 0 °C

The density of ice at 0 °C is #"0.9170 g/cm"^3#.

The volume is given by

#4.68 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g"))) × ("1 cm"^3)/(0.9170 color(red)(cancel(color(black)("g")))) = "5.10 cm"^3#.
