# Titanic sink

Chemistry Level pending

RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on $$15$$ April $$1912$$ after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, UK to New York City, US. The solid form of most substances is denser than the liquid phase; thus, a block of most solids will sink in the liquid. However, a block of ice floats in liquid water because ice is less dense. (The above right is the density of ice and water as a function of temperature.) Which of following is relevant to this phenomenon?
