What make things float in salt water?
Basically, if something is lighter than water, it will float. If the water is somehow made heavier, more things will be lighter than it. If you add a lot of salt to water, the body of water becomes heavier. Something that is heavier than water might be lighter than saltwater and float in saltwater but not normal water.
salt makes the water denser, so things that are now less dense than the salt water will float
Things float in water if they are less dense than the water they are floating in. Putting salt in the water makes it more dense, so things that are a little more dense than ordinary water float in salt water.
does the amount of salt in water affect how things float
It makes the water more dense.
Yes any salt can make things float
objects float better because chemicals help make the objects float higher. the more salt the higher the things go
Yes. Salt water has a slightly higher density then fresh water which means its a little easier for things to float in salt water. So if it floats in fresh water it will certainly float in salt water.
an egg floats in salt water because the salt acts like a barrier that will hold the egg up at the top of the water
Salt water has a greater density than fresh water. So the same object will foat higher in salt water than in fresh, and some things will foat in salt water that are too dense to float in fresh water.
Salt water is denser than fresh (not salt) water.
yes, salt will make a egg float in water not on a table though
Dissolving salt in water increases water density and hence eggs float.
Adding Salt to the water increases the density of the water, and therefore makes it weight more per capita. This in turn causes the salty water to push down with more force then water with no salt, causes things that may not float, to float, and things that already float in normal water, to float higher in salty water.
Salt makes an egg float when it's in water because the salt dissolves so it makes the water thicker which allows the egg to float.
not exactly. things that are less dense than water float. salt makes water more dense and therefore more things can float in it. ============================= (Notice that your rubber duckie floats in the bathtub, even though t here's no salt in your bath.)
Salt water has salt (!) in it, ego it is denser and takes more weight to displace it; the reason things float in whatever. The denser the liquid, the higher things float
nothing is in salt to make a egg float salt is a chemical smarticals
Salt water have a higher density.So it can produce enough upthrust to make the egg float.
anything with the less volume of water
An apple can actually float in water that is not treated with salt. Adding salt will encourage the apple to float to the top. When you add salt to water, it allows the water to become more dense.
for a brick to float on water 2 thirds of the mixture should be salt
Things float in the dead sea because of the salt content in the water.
Buoyancy is a property that states that if an object is less dense than water it will float. Since salt water is denser that fresh water, things that were previously more dense than fresh water can float in water that is more dense (salt water).
Whether things float or sink this depend only on the density , the density of the salt water is aprox. 1030 kilogram per meter cube so if you but things have density less than that they will float , things with higher density sink.
because the salt makes the water desent and it makes the egg float
Due to high density of sea water things float higher in sea water.
it makes bubbles in water which has enough energy to make it float
Freshwater is less dense than saltwater, and so it tends to float on top, as less dense things tend to float on denser things.
Salt water is more denser than any kind of water, because of its salt content,it increases the bouyancy (the property of a fluid to exert an upward thrust of the body emerged into it) of the water.So, things float more better in salt water.
An egg is one such thing.
Put salt in the water
The salted water is denser than pure water and eggs can float.
because of the change in density of the water. the salt makes things more buoyant
Mixing the water with salt can cause it to become more dense than the egg, so the egg will float.
Salt water has a greater density than pure water.
Because it doesn't matter how much salt you put into the water to make it float. Is it because the density is the same no matter how much salt you add?
Because the salt water is denser than pure water.
If there is enough salt, then yes.
it has density when dissolved in water making an egg float.
A boiled egg will float in salt water.
add salt to the water
Yes because that sat changes the water density and will make the egg float
Substances that float float better in salt water then in fresh water because salt water is more dense as a result of the salt that is dissolves in the water.
It can float with salt in the water. If it is not fresh but spoiled and there is no salt in water, it can float. If it is fresh with no salt in water, it can't float.
yes, becasue the mixture of water and salt will make the soda can less heavier then the water
Yes , because salt adds density to the water making it more dense than the egg - which makes the egg float ! (:
The cause is that salted water is denser than fresh water.
Yes it does float in salt water.
