A cubical block of ice floating in water has to support a metal piece weighing 0.5kg what can be the minimum?

NO possible answer since the ice is on water,the water must be of a lower temperature,which means the ice is continually melting ...which makes any math computation invariable!
You're meant to determine the amount of ice that, when added to this piece of metal, will have the total average density that is the same as water.
0.5 * 7.85 / 0.9 * 10 = 43.6 kilograms of ice
