You can put a uniform object into water.If it sinks density is higher than water,if floats lesser than water.If you can place anywhere in water,density is equal to water.

t If it sinks it is higher densitiy, but if it floats it's lower density. If it hangs aroung the middle it's the same density!


If it sinks its density is greater than the density of water.


The water would have the same density anywhere it is.


The density of air is significantly lower.



Compare the thing's density with the density of water. If the thing's density is less than the density of water it will float, if greater than water it will not.


The water density is 1 g/cm3 and the air density is 0,0012 g/cm3 .




The density of liquid water is greater than the density of an ice cube. This is why ice floats on top of liquid water.


The density of water is 1000 kg m-3 The density of the moon is 3346.4 kg m-3 So the density of the moon is 3.3464 times that of water.


because water is the easiest thing to compare to, with only 1 g/cc.


Gold is denser than water. That is how Archimedes supposedly figured out that the crown was tampered with.


Average density of the object compare to density of water. If denser than water, it will sink.



Air's density is less than that of water. Water's density is almost 800 times greater than air.


-- If the object floats in water, then its density is less than the density of water. -- If the object sinks in water, then its density is more than the density of water. -- If the object floats in air, then its density is less than the density of air. -- If the object sinks in air, then its density is less than the density of air.


The seawater is a saline solution; consequently, compared with tap water the density is greater - as an average: 1,025 g/cm3.




Generally, warm water has a lower density than cold water. However, between 1 and 4 degrees C the reverse is true.cold water?


It was used as a base measurement to compare other substances density. When using it to compare others then instead of density the unit 'specific gravity' is used. The specific gravity if water is 1. The density of water was set at 1 gram per cubic centimetre at STP. Furthermore, water is densest as a liquid at 4 degrees C.


Compare the density of the object in question to the density of water. If its density is less than water, it will float. For example, oak floats because its density is 0.7 g/cm³ and the density of water is 1 g/cm.If the density of an object is greater than water, it will sink.


Floating means it has a less density than water.That means the density of the object.Density of the material which the object is made may have a density higher than water.


the density of oil is less when compare to water..so only the oil float on the water
