What type of water is most likely to float on the surface of the ocean?
Ice is a form of water that will float on the surface of the ocean.
Islands do not float. Islands are the result of mounains or hills that go above thse surface of the water, which sit on the ocean floor.
Surface tension can allow a sewing needle to float on the surface water.
It is due to the fact that ponds are fresh water and the ocean is salt water. The high salt content causes you to float more easily as opposed to fresh water where you sink more readily. The Red Sea is a good example it has such a high salt content that you can almost float on the surface with little effort.
a ocean because the salt water makes you float and a pool water doesn't.
newtest3 Any object will float better in salt water. It is denser, and pushes the object, (an egg in this case) To the surface of the water. Have you ever tried to float in the swimming pool? In the ocean? Well the ocean is much easier for this reason. Next time you go swimming, try to be the egg! Remember... Oogla knows all!
The reason why ice will float on the surface of water is because ice has less density than water.
An ocean, because of the salinity of the water. The ocean water is saltier, so it makes you float more.
When salt is dissolved in water, as it is in ocean water, that dissolved salt adds to the mass of the water and makes the water denser than it would be without salt. Because objects float better on a dense surface, they float better on salt water than fresh water. The denser the salt water, the easier it is for objects to float on top of it.
Because of the hydrogen bonding between water molecules, water has a high surface tension. This allows the needle to float on the surface of the water in a glass.
The substances inside of the egg, yolk, embryo and surrounding fluid, as well as the surface area of the egg allow for the egg to float. This is the same principle that allows you to float in the ocean, namely that increase of surface area equals a decreased mass per square inch.
Because ocean plants need sunlight, most are either designed to float on the surface of the water, or grow on the ocean floor in water that is shallow enough to receive adequate sunlight. They also have adapted to salty water. Some are: kelp, seaweed. seagrass and algae.
Rain falling on the surface would slightly alter the saline content, at least temporarily. Also, very salty water is denser, so would allow less dense rain water to float near the surface.
The density of ocean (sea) water is approximatley 1.025; the density of the human body is approximately 1.00; less dense objects float on top of or near the surface of denser liquids. The saltier the water or the more body fat you have (body mass index), the better you float. Cheers Malcolm
the way it float is surface tension!!
Icebergs float in the ocean because the iceberg is less dense than the water.
Saltwater is denser than freshwater:When salt is dissolved in water, as it is in ocean water, that dissolved salt adds to the mass of the water and makes the water denser than it would be without salt. Because objects float better on a dense surface, they float better on salt water than fresh water. The denser the salt water, the easier it is for objects to float on top of it. source:infoplease
For a K12 student, the anwer would be San Jose....
Even though it is heavier than water, a paper clip can be made to float in water. If placed on the surface carefully enough the surface of the water will not be broken. Surface tension will keep it floating.
Water surface tension hold the needle on the water surface.
When the ocean water freezes, it increases the salinity. When the ocean water freezes at the surface, ice will float on top of water because ice is less dense than liquid water. The dissolved solids are squeezed out of the ice and enter the liquid water below the ice. This increases the salinity of the water. The density of the water also increases.
Any item that is lighter than the water will float on the surface of the water.
Due to surface tension, the upper surface of water acts like a stretched membrane which enables it to float a swing needle.
It will float. Its a rock. It actually depends on how much water you have, if you you tried float it in the ocean, it would obviously sink. But if you tried to float it on a gladd or bowl or water, it would float,
A thin aluminum foil can float on water if placed carefully flat on the surface because of the surface tension of water. If you were to submerge it, the foil will sink.
could be water hyacinth Yes, water Hyacinth's do float on the water surface. Hyacinths have leaves that look like hippo ears. Water lilies also float on the water surface. They have flat leaves that fill the water surface and the flowers poke up among the leaves. Patti Rose www.rosepond.com
It is easier to float in the ocean because of the high salt content in the water. It causes more buoyancy. The water in your pool is fresh water.
Paper clips can float on water because their weight is insufficient to break the surface tension of the water.
Most likely it exists within Neptune as water vapor. It is possible Neptune has a liquid water ocean deep under its surface.
High surface tension.
Yes, a cork will often float on the surface of water, depending on the cork's density. But a marble will sink in water because of its weight. It will not float on the surface.
The ocean contains dissolved salt, therefore its density if higher than the fresh water in a river. It is easier to swim in higher density liquids because you float better as less water needs to be displaced to allow you to remain on the surface of the water.
I dont think so because if it did the water in the ocean (like at the beach) would float and you could see it! I havent seen any salt in the ocean.
Coconuts are covered in the air tight 'hairs' that make it float on the ocean, so its dispersal mechanism is the use of water, or just 'Water'. -98colree40677
Yes, Saturn is less dense than water so it will float on it. But the ocean would have to be 70,000 miles deep to give Saturn enough water to float in. The deepest ocean on planet Earth is about 7 miles deep.
Aluminum can float on water two different ways: It can rest on the surface without breaking the surface tension. Small bits of aluminum foil can be laid onto the surface of a cup of water and they will not sink immediately. If you have a steady hand, you can even float a steel needle on the surface of water. Lower it down with a fork. It is formed into a hollow shape. An aluminum can… Read More
No, it isn't hollow/light enough... Improving answer: But sometimes things don't actually "float" on the water when they are really held up by surface tesion. I have heard that you can make paper clips or pins "float" on the surface of calm water.
It'll float, and give that iridiscent sheen on the surface.
An upwelling is a current in the ocean that brings deep, cold water to the ocean surface.
Increasing the salinity of fresh water makes the water denser. The denser the water the less deeply an object will sink into the water. The very saltiness of the Dead Sea, means that people can float on the surface without effort. A ship, after displacing its weight, will float higher on the ocean, than it would if sailing on fresh water.
Lithium will float on the surface of water due to different densities. It will also fizz on the surface of the water.
Surface tension. surface tension does
An aluminum coin (for example the 1 yen coin) will float on water due to the surface tension of water.
a sewing needle can float on the surface of water in a glass because... well if you just drop it in lightly then it will stay on the surface due to surface tension, but if you poke it below the surface it will sink because of it's mass.
there is a thing called surface tension. Surface tention is the uneven forces acting on the particles on a surface of a liquid and this causes the water to act like a sort of thin film and therefor the spider can float.
Because of surface tension on the top of the water. Surface tension is when the water molecules stick together allowing a small, light object to "float" on the surface. If you genitally pushed on the pin after is settled on the water, you would break the surface tension and the pin would sink.
The more salt there is in the water, the easier it is to float.
salt water. For example the ocean. when you float does it feel easier to float in than a pool?yes!
The surface area of the raft displaces the water forcefully which causes float
