-- 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.

It means: * Calculate the density of an object * Calculate the density of its pieces * Compare

Compare the density of the unknown object to the density of known substances.

for the same volume, the higher the object density the higher is its mass.

Higher than what ?? If the object's density is higher than the density of water, then the object sinks in the water.

When you have the density of both the object and the fluid, just see which has a higher density. If the object has a higher density than the fluid, the object will sink. If the object has a lower density than the fluid, the object will float.

Floating means it has a less density than water.That means the density of the object.Density of the material which the object is made may have a density higher than water.

The object can have any density that is higher than the density of water. (Density of water: 1g/mL)

It describes things that have a higher density than another object. For example, "The metal ball is denser than the baloon."

Higher the difference of water density to object density is higher buoyancy force.

The higher the density, the lower the buoyancy and the lower the density, the higher the buoyancy

one object has greater density than another when it has

The object that sinks in the fluid is more dense than the fluid

You can put a uniform object into water.If it sinks density is higher than water,if floats lesser than water.If you can place anywhere in water,density is equal to water.

It's identical. (assuming that the object is homogeneous)

The higher the density of an object, the harder it will be for the sound to be transmitted through the object.

A floating object is less dense than the fluid in which it's floating.

If the density of an object is lower than water then it will float, if the density is higher it will sink.

If an object has lower density than the fluid then it will float. If it has higher density then it will sink.

An object that sinks into a fluid has higher density than the fluid.

It compares how closely the mass is packed in different substnces.

Sinking: the density of the object must be higher than the density of the liquid.Floating: the density of the object must be lighter than the density of the liquid.

It depends on the density of the object. If the object's density is higher than the density of water, the object will sink. If it is lower, it will float.
