Water is a relatively dense fluid so many other fluids will have lower densities. Most oils and spirits are lower density, hence they float on water.

What will float in different liquids?

Anything can float in different liquids as long as the object's density is less than that of the liquid's density.


What liquid has a density less than water?

Cooking oil has a density less than water.


Will an object float if its density is less than the liquids density?

Yes, this is the principle of buoyancy. This is what makes balloons float in the air and boats float on water.


What is the effect of temperature on density of liquid?

That depends on the liquid. For most liquids, as the temperature decreases, the density increases. Water would be an exception since the density of ice is less than that of liquid water.


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.

Do liquids with the highest density float at the top of a bottle?

Liquids with a higher density than 1.0g will sink in water, so liquids with a lower density float to the top. For insitsance cold water sinks warm water rises bc cold water has a higher density per cm3 than warm water does.


What liquids are less dense than water?

Some of the liquids that are less dense than water ( that I know of) include oil, alcohol and Hexane(:


Which has less density a cork or water?

A cork is less denser than water because cork is floating on water so it will have less density than water


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.


What is the density of an object that floats in water?

Less than the density of water.


If an object floats in water is its density less than that of water?

The "average" density of the object must be less than that of the water displaced.


How do you know if a compound has a density less than 1 gmL?

If it floats in water, it has a density less than water. Density of water is 1.0 g/mL


Why does a gallon of oil weigh less than a gallon of water?

The density (mass/volume) of the oil is less than the density of water. It is the same reason that ice floats on the top of water, rather than sinking. The density of frozen water (ice) is less than the density of liquid water.


What is floats in water What density?

An object will float in water if it has LESS density than the water.


What is density of pumice?

How do densities of the things that floatrdbcompare to the density of water?

their density is less than that of water


Why density of substance in the solid state is more than in the liquid state?

well there is no rule that solids are denser than liquids. Some liquids are denser than solids. take an example of water. when in solid state the density of ice is less than that of water.But as ice melts and its tempertaure raises till 4degrees its density increases and is more than that of ice.This is anomolous expansion of water.


Is it true that when the weight of an object is less than the density of water that object the object will float?

The weight does not determine if an object will float in water. If an object has a DENSITY that is more than the density of water then it will sink, if it's density is less than the density of water it will float.
