Can a brick float on water?
No- a brick sinks.
for a brick to float on water 2 thirds of the mixture should be salt
one answer is a brick.A brick does not float on water.
Yes, unless you put a brick on it:p
Objects float or sink because of their density. An example of an object with low density is a sponge, as it has loads of air bubbles in it, and will float. An example of an object with high density is a brick. This is because the brick doesn't have any air trapped in it, it is "packed in", and is more dense than water, therefore it will sink.
Wood float on water, bricks not.
Probably a rollar skate. (Not sure. :-|)
First, what will the object be floating on? The principal to your question is: for an object to float, its density must be equal to or less than the density of the liquid on which it is to float. A brick will float on top of mercury, because mercury is more dense than the brick. A cork will float on water because the cork is less dense than water. The same works for gases. An… Read More
It depends upon its shape. A solid brick of lead will sink. A lead weight pressed into the shape of a bowl will float, because it displaces more water, and is therefore buoyant enough to float.
Archimedes' Principle. It all depends on the buoyant force and the densities of the two objects.
A boat can float on the water, and a submarine can float in the water.
it erodes the brick leaving small holes in the brick how does water cause weathering of a brick?
The aqua blue toy sailboats float on the tranquil pond unlike the heavy red brick.
There are many, for example gold.gold doesn't float. boats are metal and they are also designed not to react with water but they do anyway. aluminum does pretty well in water, zinc copper galvanized steel stainless steel gold a lot of alloys titanium minerals can be suspended in water but that doesn't mean they are floating in the traditional sense. metal will only float in water if it has air trapped inside it, a metal… Read More
in order for granite to float on water, it has to be lighter than water. because if its heavier than water, it will not float!
yes iron does float in water yes iron does float in water
Rocks that float on water: pumice. Rocks that do not float on water: all other rocks.
Yes porcupines do float, all porcupines float in water
Jeremejevite does not float on water.
no gravel does not float on water.
What sediment float in the water
Will what float in a glass of water?
They float in water.
Objects sink in water if they have a higher density than water and float if they have a lower density than water. Density is mass per volume of an object (usually measured in grams per milliliters, or g/mL)-- a denser object, such as a brick, will have a higher mass per volume than a less dense object, such as a sponge. The density of water is 1 g/mL, so anything with a density greater than… Read More
It will float. Its a rock. It actually depends on how much water you have, if you you tried float it in the ocean, it would obviously sink. But if you tried to float it on a gladd or bowl or water, it would float,
There are tents designed to Float in water. But not all tents designed to float.
Well not all organs can float, but lungs can float on water
It can float with salt in the water. If it is not fresh but spoiled and there is no salt in water, it can float. If it is fresh with no salt in water, it can't float.
density of the vinegar compared to the water Actually, it does float in water, but only salt water.
Yes. Salt water has a slightly higher density then fresh water which means its a little easier for things to float in salt water. So if it floats in fresh water it will certainly float in salt water.
No, water does not float on gas. Gas floats on water.
Soil floats on water!
Its density compared to the density of the fluid. It is based on the buoyancy of the object. This is affected by the amount of matter of the object per a certain area as opposed to the fliud. One example is the igneous rock pumice. As opposed to obsidian, another igneous rock, it floats on water. Its buoyancy allows it to float on water (one of the very few rocks that can float on water)… Read More
Well, whales have special physical attributes that help them keep afloat. for example, it has a special liver filled with oil that helps it to swim. it also uses movement and its fins to keep from sinking. we weigh a tad more than a brick and we still float because we have special adaptations that stop us from sinking - we can swim! can a brick swim? does a brick have these special physical attributes… Read More
An object which is denser than water can float on water when it has a specific shape which lends it buoyancy. For example, a sheet of iron will not float on water but if the same sheet is bent in shape of a bowl, it can float on water.
Octane float on water.
fish does float on water!
Yes, bananas do float in water.
It can easily float on water.
no real pearls do not float in water
Yes, raisins do float in water.
I think it can float on water.
I have a marker which float in water.
All vegetables float in water
Wood does float on water.
they float in water because they are lighter and are less dence than water so they float. It is like a condom
it does not float in tap water because it is regular water.
Yes, they can float in salt water but not pure water.
The material which are less denser than water will float on water..!!
water doesn't float on oil, but it is the oil that floats on the water because of it's low density which makes it float on water of high density.
Substances that float float better in salt water then in fresh water because salt water is more dense as a result of the salt that is dissolves in the water.
