Sprite has sugar so it will take a while for it to sink. the penny will sink faster in water because it doesnt have sugar or anything that soda has

The density of a penny is higher.

The rate at which a body sinks is inversely proportional to the density of the liquids. Now spite has sugar content which increases it's density so it sinks faster in water.

A penny would sink in a river because a penny is made mostly of zinc, which is heavier than water. Because the penny is heavier than water, it sinks.

Move the water heater heater closer to the kitchen sink or you can purchase a water heater unit that you can put under the kitchen sink that will allow you to get hot water faster.

An egg will sink in water but will float in salt water. An egg will sink faster in hot water than it will in cold water.

a penny sinks in water because the penny is denser than water,so even if the penny is on the moon,its density is still larger than water,and the penny would still sink.

It will sink. And it will slowly oxidize from the dissolved oxygen in the water.

Salt water is more bouyant than fresh water. An item will not sink further, but will sink faster in fresh water than in salt water.

water has a density of 1. For something to float, the density of the object would have to be under 1, and to sink, it must be over 1. If it is exactly 1, then the object will remain suspended in the water. A penny has a density of over 1, so it sinks in water.

It should be thawed in a fridge, but if you are in a hurry, then put it in a sink filled with cold water. This is faster than no water and safer.

It sinks faster in hot water than warm or cold

Oil Would Float above Sprite because Sprite is thicker than oil and oil weighs less than Sprite.

When an object of volume V is submerged in a liquid, the object experiences an upward force equal to the weight of the fluid it has displaced (the weight of a volume V of fluid). Oil is less dense than water (the oil floating on the surface of the Gulf of Mexico after the Deep Horizon catastrophe is an example of this), so a given volume of oil weighs less than the same volume of water. This means that a penny of volume V submerged in oil feels the weight of gravity pushing it down, and the weight of a volume V of oil pushing it up. The upward weight pushing the penny up is less in oil than in water, so the penny will sink faster in water, theoretically.

Because of the different densities. The density of wood is less than water while the density of a penny is greater than water.

Sugar sinks at the same rate in warm or cold water. Sugar dissolves faster in warm water.

denser things sink faster the denser it is then the faster it will sink

Because in salt water the salt will be everywhere and it will be smooth

Yes, a coin does sink slightly faster in pure water than it does in sea water. The dissolved salts in sea water make the water denser, and as a result, objects immersed in sea water will experience greater buoyancy than they do in fresh water.

I don't really see why there should be any difference. And I wonder whether grapes do actually sink in salt water. They may only sink in palin water.

How fast something sings has more to do with how dense it is. For instance a coin will sink faster than a magazine weighing much more.

Sink. Like a rock. Faster than a rock. The density of water is ~1 g/cm3. Anything more dense than that will sink.

Starting with hot water from the sink will help the water in the pot get hotter quicker.
