If ice cubes sink in a liquid, we know that the density of the liquid is less than the density of the ice. The liquid does not have the buoyancy to support the ice and cause it to float.

yes, water in ice form is less dense the water in liquid form. that's why ice cubes float in a glass of soda, or on a pond or lake oly the top freezes and the ice doesnt sink to the bottom.



They don't, ice cubes float in water. Unlike most substances the solid form of water is less dense than its liquid form causing it to float.


because the stone has alot of mass so, which the stone sinks to the bottom


Because some ice cubes are cooler than others. The ones that just have that awesomeness, sink.


ice cubes, iceburgs. do they float or sink and that might answer your question


They shouldn't, ice cubes should float if they are only ice (water).


When poured into water glycerol also a liquid falls to the bottom of the beaker


Ice cubes don't sink in water, as the density of an ice cube is less than the density of water.


Ice is less dense than liquid water, so it floats. This is the same reason why ice cubes float in a glass of water.


the water sink is not solid and liquid



A block of lead will sink in a liquid if its density is greater than that of the liquid. A block of lead would sink in water.


The densest liquid would sink to the bottom of the beaker. The second densest liquid would be in the middle and the least dense liquid would sit on the top of the other two.


I'm assuming you're talking about why a rock will sink into magma. Almost any material in liquid form is less dense then in solid form. Water being the only substance, to my recollection, that does not follow this rule. So a rock is more dense then magma (liquid rocks) and will sink.


To predict whether an object will sink or float in a liquid, you must first examine the densities of both the object and the liquid. 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, the density of water is approximately 1g/ cm3. The density of ice is approximately 0.92 g/ cm3. That is why when water freezes, the ice floats on the top rather than sinking to the bottom.


What is the metric unit for liquid volume of a sink


Gold will sink in virtually any liquid.


because liquid A is viscous then liquid B


That depends on the relative densities of the solid and the liquid. If the solid is denser than the liquid, the solid will sink. If the liquid is denser, the solid will float.


An object will sink if it has greater density than water (or whatever liquid it is place in); it will float if it has less density than the liquid.An object will sink if it has greater density than water (or whatever liquid it is place in); it will float if it has less density than the liquid.An object will sink if it has greater density than water (or whatever liquid it is place in); it will float if it has less density than the liquid.An object will sink if it has greater density than water (or whatever liquid it is place in); it will float if it has less density than the liquid.


If its less it floats on the surface of the liquid. If its more it will sink to the bottom.


no it doesnt because it has lots of mass which makes in sink.


Cover the sink with washing up liquid.


Higher dense liquids sink to the bottom. Liquid with lower densities go on top.
