Saturn has less density than water.

Yes, conditionally .

If you had a big enough body of water held in a container by gravity it would. Although most of it would immediately deform from a sphere into layers on top of the water . This is possible because Saturn is mostly made up of gas that is less dense (less mass per unit of volume) than water.

The problem would be finding a solid planet big enough to put the water on.

If you could find a body of water large enough to fit Saturn, yes it could float in the water. The density of Saturn is at 0.687 g/cmร‚ยณ.

Saturn would float if it were put in water.

because Saturn has a lower density then earth

If there was a body of water big enough, Saturn could float on it.

The Planet Saturn does float in water; Saturn is actually made of helium gas, etc. You see, helium gas floats because its density is less than liquid water, so Saturn, the planet, floats on water, if you ever had a tub that large. LOL

Saturn would actually float in water if you placed it in it. Pluto would also float in water, but is no longer considered a planet.

User Avatar

Yes Saturn has less density than water. Thus if you could put Saturn in a large pool of water, it will float.

User Avatar

Saturn has denstiy so low that it could float on water.

User Avatar

Yes, Saturn is less dense than water so it will float on it. But the ocean would have to be 70,000 miles deep to give Saturn enough water to float in. The deepest ocean on planet Earth is about 7 miles deep.

It's light enough to float on water

User Avatar

Saturn is less dense than water. So the Answer is Saturn.

Saturn has a very low density and it would be able to float on water. The density of Saturn is: 0.687 grams per cubic centimeter.

User Avatar

saturn would float because it is a one of the four gas planet and hardly has an atmosphere like earth does.

User Avatar

Yes. If you can find a large enough bath (and enough water). The density of Saturn is 0.687 g/cmยณ

User Avatar

It has a lot of mass, but it is not very dense. Its density is less than that of water, so it would float on it.

User Avatar

Saturn has a density less than liquid water, the only one in our solar system for which this is the case. In a thought experiment it is therefore the only one we know of that would float on water.

User Avatar

The low density of Saturn would allow it to float in liquid water.

User Avatar

Float. The problem is whether you can find a bathtub big enough for it :D

User Avatar

Saturn is the least dense of all the planets and could float in water. Saturn has an extensive ring system.

User Avatar

Saturn, because it has a lower density than water.

User Avatar

Saturn would float. It is the least dense planet, with a density that is lower than the density of water.

User Avatar

Saturn. Obviously it's not a very practical idea, but Saturn is less dense than water.

User Avatar

So light it would actually float on water.
