How do fat people float in water?
they have a lot of flab brah
People with air in their lungs naturally float in water. Orientation is not a factor. Due to the difference in density between muscle, bones and fat. As a result muscular, tall, thin, people will float lower in the water than small, obese, sedintary people
the higher a persons fat content, the better the person will float. Fat floats on top of water and doesnt sink.
Your body fat has a lot to do with how well you will float but basically people can and do float. I personally don't float very well but with air in my lungs and on my back I float easily. Basically, it's because we are more dense than water. By breathing in air, our density becomes less than that of water and we begin to float. This is how people can stay afloat and how… Read More
Fat is less dense than water, while muscle and bone are more dense. A person with a higher fat percentage will displace his weight with less of his volume submerged, so he will float higher.
Diets that are high in fat can cause feces to float, as fat is less dense then water.
Fat is lighter than water, thus fat floats.
with fat ladies
Do they really? - If yes, it might be because they have a larger percentage of fat, and fat is lighter than water.

This is easy. Muscle does not float. If the person has body fat the person will float, the more fat the better the person floats. The less fat, the less a person floats.
the human body can float on water because you are holding your breath of course!!! Yes. Basically, air floats on water. If you breath in a lot of air, then you will float. Also, fat floats, and so humans with some fat on their bodies would float better than humans without fat.
Muscle is denser than fat. It weighs more for the same volume. That's also why skinny or muscular people tend to sink in water, but fat people float easily. Fat floats in water (it's less dense than water.) Muscle and bone are both more dense than water, and they sink.
Yes, some humans can float, others can not. It depends on how much body fat you have. The more you have, the easier it is to float.
Because of the fat contents. Fat is lighter than water and soup is denser than water.
Walruses can float due to their very high body fat content.
because you're fat
An object will float in a substance if it is less dense that it, and if they are more they will sink. Water is 1g/mL, and most people are quite similar to this (so close that usually if someone in water breathed out, they sink, breath in, they float). What makes the difference is not how much someone weighs, but their density, which depends on how much muscle and fat they have. Fat is actually… Read More
Depends on the person in question and the water. For practical purposes, most people float in ordinary water. To really float, you should be less dense than water. The percent of your body that is submerged is relative to the proportionate densities of you and the water. So if you're, let's say, 900 kg/m3, and the water is 1000 kg/m3, then about 10% of you should be above water. Increasing water density means adding solutes… Read More
yes, people do float in salt water. The dead sea is am example!
people float better in saltwater
b/c fat floats. it makes it harder to float if there no fat. And it requires skill
Fat has a lower density than water does. A solid with a higher fat content will have a lower density, and will be more likely to float in water. Full fat mayonnaise floats because it has less density than water (1g/cm*3*) and low fat mayonnaise sinks because it is more dense than water and I think it's because of the differ in the ingredients.
yes, get a lungfull of air and you'll float like a boat! A: It really depends on one's density which is very similar to water. Some people can easily float in freshwater by lying on their backs and keeping the lungs mostly full of air. Others can't, or can't do it comfortably. Fat is lighter than water, and will actually aid in the ability to float. Saltwater in the oceans and seas is much easier… Read More
Yes, "overweight" people are more buoyant than skinnier people.
Because butter is made from milk fat - which is less dense than water.
no they dont float like normal people
Water molecules are polar, and oil and fats are nonpolar. Because of this, oil and fat cannot dissolve in water, so they float on top.
In normal water, no, a human is WAY too heavy. In highly salted water, we can float. There might be a place where you can float...
People can float in the red sea because the red sea contains much salt, and the salt rises the density of the water. That is why one can float in water/\.
Fat FLOATS!! In all cases it will float in water...in cooking when the liquid begins to cool the fat will rise to the top and you will be able to skim it off the top.
People can float in water only for a short period of time. At which time they need to tread or drown.
It would depend if it is really fat or muscle. If it is fat, then it is actually oil, and oil is less dense than water and floats. (Just try pooring olive oil in a glass). However, muscle, bone, and other tissues are either denser than water or not less dense enough to have much boyancy. Since it's really density, not weight, that matters, it also makes a difference how much air is in the… Read More
Most people can float, but it depends upon their body's dimensions and lung capacity. In order to float, a body must be less dense then the medium they are in. With a full set of lungs, most humans fulfill this requirement and will float. But by breathing out, you are deflating your chest and therefore increasing your density. This will make many people sink, but not all. Muscle is more dense than fat, so usually… Read More
Amongst other things ice cream has fat in it (its made from cream after all) fat floats on water.
Personally, I float if I inhale; but I sink if I exhale. Your results may vary - for example, depending on the amount of body fat.
All people cannot float. If anyone floats, that is because their body density is lower than that of water which is highly unlikely. people float because they are bloated up with air which is less dense than water. On places like the sea, the huge quantities of salt make the density of water greater than that of the people in it thus they can float there.
Yes, elephants do float due to their high fat content which also keeps them warm in cold water. Elephants not only float they also swim and can breath through their trunks while submerged.
Yes, people can float in the black sea due to the large amount of salt in the water.
Fat serves several important functions in fish: vitamin absorption, energy reserves and insulation. Fat also contributes to buoyancy, which helps fish float in water.
The density of ocean (sea) water is approximatley 1.025; the density of the human body is approximately 1.00; less dense objects float on top of or near the surface of denser liquids. The saltier the water or the more body fat you have (body mass index), the better you float. Cheers Malcolm
High fat content within the stool will make it float, this condition is called steatorrhea. It usually suggests your body isn't producing enough enzymes called lipase to break down the fat so your body can absorb it. Or your toilet has salt water in it which will make almost anything float.
All people can float. They all have less mass than water. They all are buoyant. Perhaps, some have problems holding their heads above water.
there belly fat spreds out and will create a floating mecanism like a raft abiling it to float sorry if i spelled something wrong - mr mr
people sink and float because the human body is a large percentage water. if you lay on your back most of the time you can float. however when people are drowning they tend to throw their arms above their head to get out of the water this causes them to sink. Or it could be the cement shoes they are wearing...
because you float
Water, since it is more dense than milk, since milk has a much higher fat content than milk. Fat tends to float to the top in a liquid that contains water, hence the reason that water is heavier than milk.
People do not sink in Saline water as the salt makes the water heavy and like a log of wood people float in water.
There is so much salt in the water that the water becomes really dense, so you can lay on your back in the water and just float.
if you are less dense than the water, you are able to float. And this goes for any object, not just people.
A boat can float on the water, and a submarine can float in the water.
no fat people float ( or i wouldn't be answering) it may play a factor though
