not necceserily, depends on the density

If two objects have the same size/volume, then the denser one would be heavier.

An object floats when it displaces a volume of fluid that is equal to its total weight. The more dense (heavier per volume) the fluid is, the less the volume is that must be displaced to equal the weight of the object that floats in it.Therefore an object floats higher (is less submerged) in a denser fluid.

Because mass for a specific object can't change, only volume can change. This means you could expand and feel lighter (as a result of lower density), or contract and feel heavier (as a result of higher density), however, your actual mass would stay the same. The real answer has nothing to do with feelings or density. The reasoning is correct. You are lighter at noon because of the gravitational pull exerted by the sun.

for the same volume, the higher the object density the higher is its mass.

tungsten is more more heavier han the lead as it has great mass in less volume

It isn't. How did you get that idea? Ice is much lighter than lead, for the same volume.

given the two objects are of equal volume, the one with a lower density would would weigh less.

You have to look at the mass/volume ratio. A ratio with a high mass and low volume would have a higher density than a ratio with a lower mass and higher volume.

Trick question, the blimp is heavier than air, the gas in the blimp is lighter than air. The volume of gas in the blimp is such that it overcomes the additional weight of the blimp, and thus creates lift/buoyancy.

Simply because the volume of water displaced is not equal to the actual volume of the object. If an object is lighter than water, you have to find another method of determining its volume. ------------------------------------ alternatively you could use a very thin pin to push the object under the water. However, the volume of the submerged portion of the pin would need to be suvtracted from the volume of the object measured.

In fact, pyrite is heavier than gold. I'm not sure exactly, but I believe it is anywhere from 5% to 20% heavier than gold of the same volume.

Density tells us how much matter is packed into a measured volume. That means:Density=Mass______VolumeSo that means the more dense an object is, the more particles in them are compressed together (heavier).:)

When an object's mass increases, it will be attracted more strongly towards otherobjects with mass, most noticeably the Earth.It will require more energy to change the heavier object's velocity (accelerate it).When in motion at a given velocity it will have more energy than a lighter objecttraveling with the same velocity.If the heavier object has the same volume as when it was less massive, the densitywill have increased.

It is inappropriate to be talking about "lighter" or heavier" with regard to liters and centiliters (or milliliters or deciliters, etc.) Why? Because the liter (and its fractional parts) is a unit of volume or capacity, not weight. You may say that a liter is 100 times greater in volume than a centiliter. You could say that a liter is ten times greater in volume than a deciliter. You could also say that a deciliter is ten times greater in volume than a centiliter. But one is not necessarily heavier or lighter than another. Unless, of course, you have a liter and centiliter of the same substance! A liter of water, for example, will be 100 times heavier than a centiliter of water -- as long as both are at identical temperatures. (Water at 4 degrees Celsius is denser than water at higher and lower temperatures, so a liter of water at 4 degrees C will weigh more than 100 times a centiliter of water at higher or lower temps.)

Bronze has a higher density. so for an equal volume bronze will be heavier.

Density is defined as the mass per unit volume of an object. When the density of an object is high, it is heavier per unit volume. Thus when the density of an object is greater than that of water, it will sink in water. Conversely, when it is lower than that of water, it will float on water.

Mass divided by volume equals density. For the same volume, if the mass is more then the density is higher.

the volume of an object is alex

The basic way is you take the volume of the water before you put the object in the water, then you measure the volume of the water and object you put the in the water and then you subtract the volume of the water by itself from the volume of the water with the object in it. VO=Volume of object VW=Volume of water VWO=Volume of water and object Volume of object = Volume of water and object -(Minus)- Volume of water OR VO=VWO-VW

If you consider an amount of watermolecules, they weigh at all times the same. If you consider a volume of watermolecules, as temp increases, molecules expand, and there will be less molecules for the same volume, thus reducing weight per volume.

nothing changes. in other words it is not becoming heavier but it is also not containing more of the object.

Increasing the temperature, lighter particles, higher surface area to volume ratio and a steeper concentration gradient.

there is so little difference that it is seldom even considered in normal applications. However, if you are dealing in very large quantities, you will find that sweeter wine is heavier and drier wine is lighter than water.
