one gram is equal to the weight of a 1cm^3 block of ice.

Yeah

Isn't that liquid water that has a density of 1g/cm^3?

apparently thats what the metric system is based upon; god knows were i heard it.. but yeah.. 1 gram = weight of 1cm^3 block of ice.

try it some day.. or not.

well then 5g of water would be less than 5cm^3, because ice expands when it freezes.

I think fish was right.

density of water = 1 gcm^-3

density = mass/volume

volume = mass/density

volume = 5g/1gcm^-3 = 5 cm^3

I hate to be picky but when the French defined the kilogram, they got it wrong slightly (yes this is true). Thus, 1 kg = 1000.028 cm^3 of water at maximum density, i.e. at 4 degrees Celsius. (The litre was also defined as 1000.028 cm^3 until 1964.)

The strict answer is therefore 5.00014 cm^3, at 4 degrees Celsius and standard pressure.

quoting to that kind of uncertanty is just stupid and i'm sure that if u really wanted to u could work out the volume to an even more silly amount of decimal places.
