Yes, this is the principle of buoyancy. This is what makes balloons float in the air and boats float on water.

Anything can float in different liquids as long as the object's density is less than that of the liquid's density.


The weight does not determine if an object will float in water. If an object has a DENSITY that is more than the density of water then it will sink, if it's density is less than the density of water it will float.


An object will float - on water for example - if its density is less than the density of water.

An object would float on a fluid if the density of the object was less than the density of the fluid.


No. To float density must be less than 1 (the density of water).


For an object to float in a fluid, its density must be less than that fluid. So for an object to float in water it must have a density of less than about 1g/cm^3

Density. An object will float in a substance if its density is less than the density of the substance. The density of water is 1 kg /L or 1 g/ cm3. Anything with a density less than this will float.


An object will float in water if its density is lower than water which means that for an object to float, its density needs to be less than ~1 gram/centimeter^3,


An object will sink if it has greater density than water (or whatever liquid it is place in); it will float if it has less density than the liquid.An object will sink if it has greater density than water (or whatever liquid it is place in); it will float if it has less density than the liquid.An object will sink if it has greater density than water (or whatever liquid it is place in); it will float if it has less density than the liquid.An object will sink if it has greater density than water (or whatever liquid it is place in); it will float if it has less density than the liquid.


Any object will float in water, provided that the density of the object is less than the density of water. If the density of the object is more, it will sink.


An object's density must be less than the density of water,in order for the object to float.


Is this the density of a liquid or an object? If this is the density of a liquid and you want to make an object float, than the density of the object should be less than 2.7. If this is the density of an object you are trying to make float, than the density of the liquid should be greater than 2.7.


If the density of the object is less than the density of the water it is placed in, the object will float and vice versa.


If an object is less dense then water, it will float assuming the object does not absorb the water there by increasing its density.


If an objects density is 1 or less, it will float on water


The density of the object and the density of the liquid. The object must be less dense than the liquid to float.


An object will float if its density is less than its environment. Or, another way, an object will float if it weighs less than the volume of the gas (or fluid) that it displaces.


if it is lighter than the amount of liquid it displacesIf the density of the object is lower than the density of the liquid, then it will float. If the object is denser than the liquid, then it will sinkThe answer is just density lolAn object will float if its density is less than its environment.

If the object has less density than the liquid in which it will be placed, then it will float. If the object has a greater density than the liquid, then it will sink.


mass cannot determine if an object will sink or float. It depends on two other things. The first is the density of the liquid. The next is the density of the object. If the density of the object is higher than the liquid, then it will float. If it has less density, it will float.


the object with less density rises to the top of the object


A less dense object or any other substance will float on a more dense liquid.
