# What is the density of betelguese?

The density of Betelgeuse is very low: 1,119.10 ex.-8 from the
density of the Sun.

The density of Betelgeuse is extremely low: 1,119.10 ex.-8 from the density of the sun.

### Was Betelgeuse always a red star?

No Betelguese was not always a red star. Betelguese is a red supergiant, with a diameter of 936 times the sun and mass 16-18 times that of the sun. It is red because although it is a huge star it's surface temperature is only 3,500 K compared to the suns surface temperature of 5,778K. It is nearing the end of it's life and has left the main sequence. When it was younger it would have…

### 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.

### How are mass and volume related to the sinking and floating of an object?

An object will float - on water for example - if its density is less than the density of water. Density = mass / volume. An object will float - on water for example - if its density is less than the density of water. Density = mass / volume. An object will float - on water for example - if its density is less than the density of water. Density = mass / volume…

### A can of Diet Coke floats and a can of reg coke sinks in water what is the difference between them the volumeor the mass or the density or weight?

An object will float in a liquid if its density is less than the density of the liquid. The density is the mass divide by the volume. An object will float in a liquid if its density is less than the density of the liquid. The density is the mass divide by the volume. An object will float in a liquid if its density is less than the density of the liquid. The density is…

### What is the relation of weight density to relative density?

Density has dimensions - for instance grammes per cubic centimetre. Relative density is dimensionless - it is a density compared to another density - it is a dimensionless ratio. Normally the ratio is based on water, which has a density of 1g/cm3, so density and relative density are usually the same number - one with units, one without.

### On 2012 whether sun will become two and how?

Is there some 2012 scare that the Sun will split in two? If so, as with all 2012 scares, this is false. There is NO way that the Sun could split in two. It is not physically possible. If it did - we would have to rewrite all physics and astronomy books and worse - find a very large coffin to put every human on Earth in. NO a massive star called betelguese will explode…

### What factors determine how heavy an object can be and still 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.
