Why the dead body float on the water?
Many gases produce in body of human. When the man die the water enter the human body and there is no way for air to diffuse out of the human body .As the gasesare lighter so they try to diffuse out of the water due to this the dead body floats on water
Gases that are lighter than the water build up in a dead body after several days, causing it to eventually 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
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.
The Dead Sea has the highest salt concentration of any body of water in the world. A human being literally will float on top of the water in the Dead Sea.
After death, the body decomposes and takes in a gas that allows a body to float temporarily until the gas is let out. Because air floats on water you would float if you are dead.
yes because the salt content in the water is so high your able to float in the shallower areas of the body of water
because it has so much salt in it that it enables the body to float instead of sinking in the water
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.
The Dead Sea.
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.
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 body(s) will float in seawater [at least dead animal body(s) do]. ... visualize that once the body begins to decompose bacterial gases will cause the body to float to the surface ... imagine that body(s) which end up in deep water (thereby very cold water) do not experience bacterial decomposition as quickly and consequently with limited light and oxygen any bodies in deep/cold water decompose and are consumed more slowly without floating to the… Read More
When something dies, gasses are released by the body. These gasses collect and cause the body to swell, and if the body is in the water, they cause it to float.
A dead body decomposes in water as the organs & cells absorb water.The decomposed body increases in volume weight to displace more water to float. A living body cannot displace water as the volume and tends to sink in water.
Humans float in water due to the air in the lungs. This is why a dead body will sink for 24 hours before rising again. The lungs hold no air, but the gasses produced by the rotting flesh will eventually bring the body back tot he surface. This is also why dead bodies in water tend to have a bloated appearence.
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.
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 density of the water in dead sea is very high and hence bodies float on the water
The higher the salt content of seawater, the more buoyant the water is. And the Dead Sea has the highest salt content of any body of water in the world.
bacteria in the intestines produce gas, which bloats the body, making it less dense than water
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
Well not all organs can float, but lungs can float on water
Things float in the dead sea because of the salt content in the water.
The body will float in the water after it has drowned for a while. The body will not stay down.
yes, people do float in salt water. The dead sea is am example!
nothing. it just drops where ever you throw it, but if you throw it in water, itll float.
Yes. The salt stabalizes them in the water. If you have ever heard of the dead sea, anything really can float in there. If there is salt in water a peanut can float.
The Dead Sea is well known for its' high level of salinity. The high level of salt in the water makes the human body more buoyant.
you float cause the salt evaporates ant o2 rises
Assuming it's a regular steel anchor, an anchor, can't float in the dead sea. Dead Sea water is dense and buoyant for being water, but it's not THAT dense.
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.
Because salinated water has more atoms per mole of the compound, it makes this solution denser than pure water. The heavier a solution is the more force that can be applied to it without breaking its surface. Think of trying to float in air, or to float in water. You are able to float in water because the substance is much denser than air. You will have a much easier time floating in the Dead… Read More
The dead sea; the salt is so dense, and you can float on the water so easily, that you can lay in it reading a book without the book getting wet!
For something to float in water, the object must be less dense than water. Humans float in water because the body is collectively less dense than the water itself. If the body were completely water, it would not sink or float, just stay suspended in the water.
This had to do with density. When you put the egg into the water, it sinks as it is more dense than the water. However, if you add salt in the water, it becomes salt water and makes the water more dense than the egg so the egg can float. It is the same reason why people float in the dead sea. The dead sea is very salty and is more dense than humans. That's… Read More
Salt water is denser than fresh water, therefore, it is easier to float in. The Dead Sea is a landlocked lake of very salty water, it is very easy to float in.
i think by getting it into the water well it should float
A body floats in water because it is less dense than water.
If a dead body has been embalmed and you submerge it in water will it still build up gasses and float?
In short no. The reason a submerged body wil float is because of the gasses created by bacteria as they degrade the organic matter. Once tha body has been enbalmed it will not rot, the bacteria will not act on it and thus not create the gasses.
The dead sea has so much salt that it is denser than the human body, causing humans to float on it.
If it is a human it will float because of the gas building up its body until the body explodes then when it does the body sinks hope my info has been useful
You float face down in the water. You only move to get air.
Whether an object will float or sink in water will depend on its volume and weight. If the weight of the displaced water is more than that of the body, the body will float. On the other hand if the weight is the displaced water is less than that of the body, the body will sink. Again if both of them are equal, the body will partially sink. Sea water contains salt. So its density… Read More
They dont live in water turtles do
If its floating it dead ....
Sort of, its the gasses produced by those bacteria that makes it float.
The Dead Sea is much saltier than other seas. The dissolved salt increases the density of the water, making it easier to float on.
There is so much salt in the water that the water becomes really dense, so you can lay on your back in the water and just float.
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 Dead Sea contains the saltiest water ever and if you were to lay on it you would float.
