What determines if an object will sink float or remain suspended in water?
by dividing mass by
volume you get density which is how you determine as the density increases the chance of floating decreases
It will remain suspended if the mass and the volume is equal
It will sink if the mass weighs more than the volume
and it will float if the mass weighs less than the volume
It depends on the object's density. If the object's density is greater than that of water (1 g/ml), it will sink. If it is less, it will float. It can be suspended in water. if the water is flowing fast enough. Whether it stays suspended depends on the shape of the object and the flow of water, much like how leaves can be suspended in the air.
The buoyancy of an object determines how well it will float. The surface area will increase the volume to give more displacement even if the density of a material may be high eg iron ball will sink but if it covers a large area it will float as in ships made of iron. The density of the object and the density of the fluid determines how well an object will float in a fluid. The…
Many things can float in water. An object will float based on 2 main factors. They are density and shape. If an object is too dense, it will sink. But why would shape matter? The shape of the object affects how the water is displaced. If the weight of the water displaced is more than the weight of the object that is touching the water, the object will float. So the shape affects how much…
if it is lighter than the amount of liquid it displaces If the density of the object is lower than the density of the liquid, then it will float. If the object is denser than the liquid, then it will sink The answer is just density lol An object will float if its density is less than its environment. Or, another way, an object will float if it weighs less than the volume of the…
