Sink, water with a density of 1 can sustain any object below the density of 1. Any object higher with a density higher than 1 will sink.

## Related Questions A less dense object will rise over a more dense object. Conversely a more dense object will sink under a more dense object. So if an object is less dense than water then it will float. If it is more dense than water, then the water will float on top of the object, meaning, the object will sink. An object must be less dense than water in order to float on water. it depends on how dense the object is if it is more dense than the water it will sink if it is less dense than the water it will float. if an object is denser than water then it will sink BUT if it is less dense than water it will float If the object is less dense than water it will float, but if it is more dense it will sink. when a object is less dense it will float and if it has more dense it will sink You need to be more specific. It depends entirely on what object you are using. If the object is more dense than water then it will sink. If not, it will float. If an object is less dense than water, it will float. If it is more dense than water, it will sink. Buoyancy is a property that states that if an object is less dense than water it will float. Since salt water is denser that fresh water, things that were previously more dense than fresh water can float in water that is more dense (salt water). A ball will float on water because it is buoyant. It has to do with density. If an object is less dense than water (for example, oil), it floats. If an object is more dense than water, it sinks. density. A less dense object will float on a more dense liquid. Objects sink in water because they are more dense than water. If the object is less dense than water, the object will float. It depends! If it is more dense than water then it will sink. If not it will float.  It all depends on the density of the object. If an object was less dense than water, then it will float. If an object is more dense than water, then it will sink. The density of water is 1 g/cm cubed, and objects more dense that water will sink, while objects less dense than water will float. An object will sink if it weighs more than the water it pushes away, and an object will float if it weighs less than the water it pushes away. The Greek mathematician Archimedes discovered that the amount of water displaced by an object depends on the mass of that object. Mass is the amount of matter in a substance, and dense objects have more mass than less dense objects. Dense objects that do not displace much water will sink, while less dense objects that displace a lot of water will float. no it won't, water was a density of 1g/1cm3 and wood has a density of 0.4g/1cm3 therefore wood can float in water because it is less dense then water. something like concrete (density of 2.3g/1cm3) will sink because it is more dense then water. so in able to float the fluid has to be more dense then the object. Well, if the object is more dense than the liquid, it will sink. If the object is less dense than the liquid, it will float. For example, a kernel is more dense than water, so it sinks, but the kernel is less dense than corn syrup, so it will float. Water is more dense than oil. So in order for an object to float in oil it would have to be even less dense than if it were to float in water. I'm going to go with water. The object's density: if the object is more dense than water, then it will sink. If it is less dense than water, it will float. Feces (the technical term) are less dense than water. If an object is less dense than water, it floats. If it is more dense than water, it sinks. Density (mass x volume) of the object. If the object is less dense (helium in air, or foam in water) than the fluid in which it is placed, it will float. Likewise, if the object is more dense (lead in water, or water in air), it will sink. They do exist. I was watching "Bill Nye: The science guy" and he was talking about this. It sits in the middle of the water, not doing anything. It is exactly as dense as water. Less dense will float. More dense will sink. The weight of the object is either more dense or less dense then the water. Example: A feather is less dense then water, so it floats. A common stone is more dense, so it sinks.
