Does coke or diet coke float?

Diet coke floats because Floating occurs because floating objects displace, or push aside, a certain amount of liquid. If an object displaces more than its weight in liquid, it floats; otherwise it sinks. Density (the mass per unit of volume) determines how much liquid is displaced. Density is usually compared to water, which is assigned a density of 1. Materials sink if (like regular Coke) they are more dense than water, while less-dense materials, like Diet Coke, float.

Does Coca-Cola weigh more than Diet Coke?

Because it is less dense because of the different type and amount of sweetener in the Diet Coke. Sugar in a water solution creates a more dense liquid than does an artificial sweetener when the same degree of sweetness is acquired. Diet Coke floats while regular Coca-Cola sinks!
