You must compare the densities of the object and whatever substance you are putting it in.

If the density of an object is greater than the substance it is in, then the object will not float on the surface Average density of the object compare to density of water. If denser than water, it will sink.  Floating means it has a less density than water.That means the density of the object.Density of the material which the object is made may have a density higher than water. Compare the density of the object in question to the density of water. If its density is less than water, it will float. For example, oak floats because its density is 0.7 g/cm&sup3; and the density of water is 1 g/cm.If the density of an object is greater than water, it will sink. it depends on the density of the object and the density of the liquid that it's in. if the density of the object is greater than the density of the liquid, then the object will sink. if the density of the object is lesser than the density of the liquid, the object will float. An object will float if it has less density than the density of the liquid.An object will float if it has less density than the density of the liquid.An object will float if it has less density than the density of the liquid.An object will float if it has less density than the density of the liquid.  density of the object &lt; density of the fluid The idea is to divice the mass by the volume, to get the density. Then compare to the density of silver.The idea is to divice the mass by the volume, to get the density. Then compare to the density of silver.The idea is to divice the mass by the volume, to get the density. Then compare to the density of silver.The idea is to divice the mass by the volume, to get the density. Then compare to the density of silver. The density of an object is related to the density of the fluid it is in because if the density of the object is less than the fluid than it will float. If this density of the object is greater than the density of the fluid it will sink to the bottom. When you have the density of both the object and the fluid, just see which has a higher density. If the object has a higher density than the fluid, the object will sink. If the object has a lower density than the fluid, the object will float. You must compare the densities of the object and whatever substance you are putting it in. If the density of an object is greater than the substance it is in, then the object will not float on the surface Tomatoes are denser than water Density is the ratio of mass to volume. Thus, the density of an object is the mass of the object divided by its volume. To get the density of an object you will:Divide the mass by the volume. ANSWER:No. The mass will be halved but the density will remain the same. ___________________________________________________________The density will remain the same since the formula for density of an object is mass/volume. When you split and object, the mass is divided by 2, and the volume is divided by 2 (or whatever fraction you want to cut your item). If you would, compare mass/volume=mass divided by 2/volume divided by 2. To find the density of an object, you have to divide the mass of the object by the volume of the object.
