The density of the object goes through the less denser liquids until it gets to a liquid that is more dense than it. The first liquid that is denser than the object, the object will float on the liquid. My class did this in Science Class.

How does an object's density determine whether it floats or sinks?

An object will float if it is less dense than the liquid it is placed in. An object will sink if it is more dense than the liquid it is placed in.

They float.


What happens when a less dense object is placed in water?

If it's less dense than water, it floats.


What happens to more dense objects placed in less dense fluids?

The more dense object sinks below the less dense substance.


What happens if an object is more dense?

It sinks below the surface of the liquid.


How can you tell when an object will float on water or any other liquid?

The density of an object determines whether it will float or sink in another substance. An object will float if it is less dense than the liquid it is placed in. also an object will sink if it is denser than the liquid it is placed in.


How can you tell if a substance will sink or float?

take the density. if the density id larger than one it will sink. if the density is not larger than one it will float.If an object is denser than the liquid it is placed in, it will sink. If it is less dense than the liquid, it will float.


If an object is less dense than the liquid it is put into it will?

the object will float on that liquid


Why do some objects float when placed in a container filled with a liquid while other sink?

It all depends on the density of the object. If an object was less dense than water, then it will float. If an object is more dense than water, then it will sink.


Why does an object float in a liquid?

an object floats in a liquid because it is less dense than the liquid its in


If an object is more dense than the liquid the object will?

Sink


Does it is more or less dense when an object sinks?

First of all its not if the object HAS more or less dense the object is more or less dense. the answer to your question is if the object sinks it is more dense the the liquid that it was put in.


What is the relationship between the object density the liquid density and the tendency of the object to float?

A less dense object or any other substance will float on a more dense liquid.


What will an object do if it is less dense than the liquid it is in?

It will float on top of the liquid.


The ability of an object to float on a fluid is influenced by?

density. A less dense object will float on a more dense liquid.


How is the depth an object sinks in a liquid related to the ration of the density of solid to liquid?

An object sinks if it is more dense than the liquid it displaces. So the deeper it sinks, the more dense it is than the liquid it is submerged in.


Why does the thermeter drop down when it is placed in a liquid?

The thermometer is more dense than a liquid.


What happens to a ray of light when it travels from a dense medium to a less dense medium?

It will be become bent as it passed from a dense object into a less dense object.


What is the relationship between an objects density and the liquid density and the tendency of an object to float?

A less dense object or any other substance will float on a more dense liquid.


How would you verify the Archimedes principle for objects that are less dense than the liquid?

Two ways to do this: 1) Floating the less dense object on the more dense liquid. To verify the Archimedes principle you need to show that the mass of the liquid displaced by the less dense object is equal to the mass of the less dense object. To do this you need to have a way to determine the mass of the displaced liquid. If the liquid is in a container filled to the brim, then when you place the less dense object in it, the displaced liquid will spill out over the edges of the container. If you can collect and weight that liquid, then you can compare its weight to the weight of the less dense object - they should match. Alternatively, you can find a way to measure the volume of the displaced liquid and calculate the mass from the volume and density of the displaced liquid. 2) Immerse the object completely in the liquid and measure the force required to keep it submerged. This one is more complicated and difficult to execute and measure. The force required to keep the less dense object submerged should be the difference between the weight of the object (when it is not in the liquid) and the weight of the displaced liquid.


Does ice float because water becomes more or less dense when its frozen?

The structure of frozen water (ice) is less dense than the random arrangement of the water molecules in liquid water, thus ice floats because water becomes less dense when it is frozen. Because of buoyancy forces, an object placed in a liquid will float if it is less dense than the liquid and sink if it is more dense.


What would happen if an object is less dense than the fluid it is placed in?

The object would float


Why do less dense objects float on more dense objects?

Yes, an object will float if it is less dense than the fluid in which it is placed.
