# How did the densities of the floating objects compare to the density of water?

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.

## Related Questions No, you can compare densities for objects of different sizes. Just divide mass by volume for each object. Floaters have densities lower than that of water. Sinkers have densities higher than that of water. Density: is when something has alot of weight, and obviously is very heavy Floating: is when something is light and is not as dense The fluids with highest densities form the lowest layers. The fluids with lowest densities form the highest layers. The density of fresh water is 1.0. Anything with a density less than 1.0 will float; anything with a density higher than 1.0 will sink. Objects with densities a little less than 1 will float with most of the volume below the surface; objects with very low densities - like a ping-pong ball - will float mostly on top of the water. Human beings have a density very close to 1.0, so we barely float. they all have a density that is less than water less than water different objects have varying densities Mass affects the density of a object which therefore affects the floating and sinking of it I would say that one of the densities is the greatest, one of them is the least, and the third one is an intermediate density.  Density is a property (mass per unit volume), not an object. Objects with high densities tend to sink while less dense objects tend to float. Volume. Density depends on mass and volume. Density = mass/volume. Things that have the exact same mass can have different densities if the volume associated with either are different. Their mass (and the density of the fluid they're floating in). You can always compare the densities by the formula d=m/v, where m is the mass and v is the volume . However; a simpler technique is to put the objects in some water . The densities can be compared by how much water each of them will displace. An object will float if it has less density than the fluid in which it is placed; if the object has more density, it will sink. Floating Objects are objects that are less densethan water. Usually yes. Each material has its characteristic density. Of course, it is possible for two different materials to have densities that are very close to one another. Density. Objects that are more dense than other less dense objects will sink below them. This is how floating works, as well. Objects with higher densities than water will sink in water. What they do in other substances depends on the densities of those substances.  A 1-inch cube of stone . . . high density. A 1-inch cube of styrofoam . . . low density. A 1-inch cube of air . . . even lower density. These substances can have different masses for the same volume. Because density = mass / volume, if the volume is the same, you would have to change the mass to get a different density. If two objects have the same volume but different masses, then they have different densities. Density is the measure of how much mass a substance has in a certain volume. Usually the density of floating object will be less than that of the liquid in which it is floating. But exception is that ship made up of iron will float in less dense water. Becasue a large amount of water will be displaced due to the specific construction of the ship. The weight of the displaced water will be more than the floating ship. no, because some of them is not high ,some of them are low densities.
