Question:

If you fill a glass to the brim with ice water and the ice melts, what will happen?

Answer:

The water will drop slightly as the ice melts. One interesting property of water is that it achieves maximum density as a liquid, not as a solid. So, ice is less dense than water and floats. When it melts, it becomes more dense. More mass per unit volume means the level of the liquid drops slightly.
