Why do dead bodies float on water whereas the living bodies sink?
because when the dead body is dumped in water, slowly the body absorbs water and the density of the body and water becomes the same.but wheras living bodies is denser than liquid.
Dead bodies float on water much the same way living bodies do. And yes, living bodies do float on water. But if you panic and exhale, you will sink. IF you stay calm and keep your lungs inflated you will float. This is because of density. Anything less dense than water floats, and anything more dense than water sinks. Our human bodies have a density close to that of water and we WILL float if… Read More
the density of the water in dead sea is very high and hence bodies float on the water
dead bodies can't obiously move so they lay in a straight forward position. Only straight and accurate shapes can float. if u lie straight in water (u the living one) u would float 2 p.s- stupid question
the bodies of people don't float because of the currents in the water and cause of the weight so the bodies will remain underwater.
i think by getting it into the water well it should float
Dead bodies float due to the gases produced during decomposition. The gases are lighter than the water, causes the body to float and to continue decomposing
Sort of, its the gasses produced by those bacteria that makes it float.
A person living underwater would die. But, people do float.
Because water is more dense then our bodies so when things are more dense they sink to the bottom and when they are less dense they float to the top
Wood and expanded polystyrene.
Well both a dead body and living one floats on top of water. But the more you panic, the faster you will sink. If you were to stay calm and relax, you will have no problem with floating on top of water.... this is because of density. Anything less dense than water will float and anything more dense than water will sink. Our bodies(YOU CAN BE 600LBS) have a density less than water....so we will… Read More
Yes, because they contain gases from the decomposition.
Water pollution is the contamination of bodies of water. Water pollution affects plants and organisms living in these bodies of water.
They shoot a cannon over the water and float a loaf of bread filled with quicksilver in it on the water. This supposedly makes the body stop and float.
The density of all water is 1, no matter the amount or location. Humans have the density of 0.9, so humans barely float in all bodies of water.
they have swollen or spongy bodies .they are light
Dead bodies float due to an accumulation of gases. These gases are a by-product of decomposition. The gases are lighter than the water and buoy the body to the surface.
Because without water no living thing can live because all living thing contain some water in their bodies.
The ones which float have a lower density than water, whereas those which sink have a higher density than water. However, also the shape the material is in influences whether it sinks or floats.
A body floats due to the gases left in the body, once the gases dissipate the body sinks until it produces more gas to float.
because there are electrical curronts and the curronts of the water.
When living in or traveling other states, it is sometime fun to be aware of any bodies of water. Louisville, Kentucky has two bodies of water, the Falls of Ohio, and the Ohio River.
the human body can float on water because you are holding your breath of course!!! Yes. Basically, air floats on water. If you breath in a lot of air, then you will float. Also, fat floats, and so humans with some fat on their bodies would float better than humans without fat.
There are a wide variety of factors that influence this. Bodies float due to decomposition gases trapped within it affect its buoyancy. A body sunk in cold, oxygen free water might not decompose in such a way as to ever cause it to float.
bacteria in the intestines produce gas, which bloats the body, making it less dense than water
Heat from the sun evaporates various bodies of water, causing it to go into gas for and float into the atmosphere, where it condenses into clouds from cold temperature, then is reaches the point of normal water, then falls back to Earth the refills the bodies of water and the process restarts.
By excrection and sweating
Fresh eggs are less dense than water and hence will float whereas old eggs will sink at the bottom of the container filled with water. Similarly, a regular soda can will sink in water and a diet soda can will float on water. Water have a density of 1.00 g/cm3.
They are water insects living in almost all fresh water bodies of water
Most fish have swim bladders giving them buoyancy that allows them to "float" at various levels in water. While some species are surface dwellers other fish floating on the surface are deceased and float because of gases formed within their bodies due to the process of decay.
The living things pollute water bodies. The trees which transpire are falling down.
yes, get a lungfull of air and you'll float like a boat! A: It really depends on one's density which is very similar to water. Some people can easily float in freshwater by lying on their backs and keeping the lungs mostly full of air. Others can't, or can't do it comfortably. Fat is lighter than water, and will actually aid in the ability to float. Saltwater in the oceans and seas is much easier… Read More
Well, a dead body may sink in water then float, because the bodily gases will later bring the body back up to the surface after a little bit of decomposition. Other than dead bodies, no solid object will sink then float in water. Submarines might also fit the bill, if your not sticky about the methods.
Bodies start to float once the gas from decomposition replaced the water inside the lungs. It is effected by the depth and temperature or the water. In warm water it can be as soon as 1 to 2 days in 80 degree water, or as much as 14 to 20 days in freezing cold water.
All pure metal sinks, only by entrapping air in waterproof compartments can you make it (ships) float.
They are the scavengers of the water bodies. They eat the carcasses of dead animals that float in the waters and keep the waters clean.
Because your body is less dense than the water. More dense bodies go down, in fact you don't float back to the top, the water falls down not leaving room for your body but up to the surface.
because the stones mass is concentrated, whereas the ship's weight is spread over
Too many things to answer in a simple box ! Precipitation, nourishment for the bodies of living things, bodies of liquid mass, ect
Many animals gulp water into their stomach or another part of their bodies known as the swim bladder. The air helps to make them buoyant and can help them float for minutes or even hours in some cases. These animals include fish, and jellyfish.
Boats that float on the surface of water have shapes similar to the bodies of waterfowl. Birds like ducks, swans and geese. Animals who are adapted to floating on water try to displace as much water as they can. So, just like boats or ships that float on water, they have very wide bodies. Boats that go underwater, called submarines, are very similar in shape to dolphins or whales. These animals have very stream lined… Read More
Yes. Their bodies float on the surface of the water, and then they use their webbed feet to paddle forward. They can also dive underwater, again using their feet for propulsion.
A boat can float on the water, and a submarine can float in the water.
All the living bodies composed of organic material and water but they also have minerals in their bodies absorbed by digestive system.
Yes, especially in salt water. The dead human body will fill up with gas and float. After the Titanic sank, a lot of bodies were found floating on the surface for many days afterward. When someone is murdered, the murderer will often put on lot of weights on the person, such as metal chains, or cement, to make sure the body does not float back up to the surface.
Water (H20) is the main constituent of our bodies.
Hydrogen bonding is responsible to maintain liquid state of fluids including water in living bodies other wise the fluids must be converted in gaseous state and living bodies should be dry or dead.
yes all living things have to get water some way or another I am not sure if they drink it but they have to get water into their bodies somehow.
Water is necessary for the life of all living things. It is essential for growth, the maintenance of homeostasis, and to cleanse bodies.
Oil will float to the surface of the water.So,any living things in the water cannot get any oxygen and they will die .
