equals 512 space cm cubed
Let space new space height space of space water space be space straight H space cm
New space volume space of space water equals volume space of space water space initially space plus space Volume space of space cube
2560 plus 512 equals 16 cross times 16 cross times straight H
3072 equals 256 straight H
straight H equals 12 space cm
Rise space in space water space level equals 12 minus 10 equals space 2 space cm end style
