Why is it easier to float in the dead sea than other places?
Would you float better in salt or fresh water?
You float better in saltwater. For instance, the Dead Sea is so salty that you cannot sink or even swim in it. You can only float on top. It does not feel wet, but more like warm, runny honey. It is extremely bitter if you are unlucky enough to taste the Potassium-heavy water. Strangely, Dead Sea does not have a salty taste.
