### Why does a coin sink and a boat 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…

### How is buoyancy and density related?

(DrStrong) They are related through Archimedes' principle, FB = ρgV where FB is the buoyancy force, ρ is the density of the liquid, g is gravity, V is the volume of water displaced by the object (in other words, the volume of the object that lies underneath the water surface). If FB is greater than the weight of the object, the object will float upwards. If not, the object will sink downwards. So, the denser…

### What determines wether an object will float in water?

An object will float in water if the object's density is less than the density of water. Relative density is the ratio of one object density with respect to the density of another object. Relative density of any object with respect to water is also known as specific gravity. Objects with a specific gravity less than one will float those with a specific gravity greater than one will not.

### How are density and buoyancy related?

The more denser an object the less buoyancy. (DrStrong) They are related through Archimedes' principle, FB = ρgV where FB is the buoyancy force, ρ is the density of the liquid, g is gravity, V is the volume of water displaced by the object (in other words, the volume of the object that lies underneath the water surface). If FB is greater than the weight of the object, the object will float upwards. If not…

### When you compare the density of water or air with another object how can you tell which has the lower or higher density?

-- If the object floats in water, then its density is less than the density of water. -- If the object sinks in water, then its density is more than the density of water. -- If the object floats in air, then its density is less than the density of air. -- If the object sinks in air, then its density is less than the density of air.

### Will an object with a greater density have a greater gravitational pull than one with the same mass?

### Why does an object float in water sinks in kerosene oil?

If the volume of water displaced by the object has a mass which is greater than the mass of the object then the object will float. If the same volume of kerosene has a mass that is less than the mass of the object then it will sink. Since the density of water is greater than the density of kerosene it is possible for an object to have a displacement between the two. In that…

### Why does the object with same volume and different mass has a greater density?

Objects with the same volume but different masses will have different densities because density = mass/volume. Under these conditions, the object with the greater mass will have a greater density than the object with the lesser mass. For example, if two objects have a volume of 10cm3, but object A has a mass of 30g and object B has a mass of 20g, object A will have a density of 3g/cm3, while object B will…

### Why do objects float?

An object will float when submerged into liquid because its density is less than that of the liquid. As described in Archimedes' Principle, the buoyancy forces on an object will be equal to the weight of the liquid displaced. If the density of the object is less than that of the liquid, the weight of the liquid that would be displaced by the volume of the object will be greater than the weight of the…
