Weight of ice equals Wt. of water displaced by the immersed part of ice

This is from the statement of archimedes principle - The upward force experienced by a body in a liquid is equal to the weight of liquid displaced by the immersed part of the body.
When the ice block floats in water i.e. the forces on the bock of ice are balanced, upward force (also called buoyant force) is equal to the weight of the ice (from its free body diagram).
