No, lead is not buoyant. It is incredibly dense, which makes it very heavy, and not able to float.

Is the buoyant force of water on lead greater than that on iron?

That depends on the amounts, of course - what exactly you are comparing. The buoyant force depends on the volume. For a certain volume of lead, there will be the same buoyant force as for the same volume of iron. On the other hand, since lead has a greater density, the buoyant force on a certain amount of MASS of lead will be less, compared to iron, since the same mass of lead will use up less volume.

How can matter be more or less buoyant?

it can be more or less buoyant be having more or less mass.i.e. lead will sink in water because the mass is higher and wood will float because it is lighter. the more mass the less buoyant, less mass means more buoyant.

A block of styrofoam floats on water while a same size block of lead lies submerged in the water The buoyant force is greatest on the?

The block of Styrofoam floats on water while a same size block of lead lies submerged in the water. The buoyant force is greatest on the lead. Compared to an empty ship, the same ship loaded with Styrofoam will float lower in the water.

Can lead weights sink or float?

It depends upon its shape. A solid brick of lead will sink. A lead weight pressed into the shape of a bowl will float, because it displaces more water, and is therefore buoyant enough to float.
