The wax is less dense than water, so the wax floats.
Bees wax does float in water because it less dense than water. For this reason bees wax is a common material used to make floating candles.
Yes because if wax floats in Bayer then it will definitely float in salt water because the salt in the sea water acts as a supporting agent and will help it to float. :)
depends on the type of wax. Beeswax candels should float because their density is slightly less than that of water.
because its density is less than water
Because wax is less dense than water.
Crayons are made of colored wax. Wax in general is removed by placing the item with wax on it into boiling water. The wax will melt and float to the surface of the water.
yes it floats. Most floating candles are made out of paraffin wax.
Yes because of the density. An object will float in a fluid such as water if its density is less than that of the fluid.
Simply pour the mixture through a sieve. The water will drain through, while the wax will stay in the sieve. Alternatively, just scoop the wax out of the water, wax shavings are light enough to float.
Salt water is more dense than fresh water. Wax is less dense than Fresh water. The density difference between wax and salt water is greater than wax and fresh water, so wax floats better.
the mass decreases as the wax burns so it displaces less water
The leaf has a wax coating, so water will roll off or the leaf would float on the water.
Sink Protect it with a wax coating, or something, and it will float in mercury.

water lilies are wax coated to help them float . It has a hollow stem to help it move in water and also helps it to absorb enough amount of water.
A boat can float on the water, and a submarine can float in the water.
If it's in a block shape and it's floating on water,then guaranteed it's less dense than water.
Anything floats that weighs less than the water it displaces. See Archimedes Principle. Molten wax will blend in oil to some extent , especially if it's lanolin-based.
No, wax and water are immiscible.
Paraffin wax has a density of roughly 0.8 gm/cm3 . It will float in any fluid whose density is greater than roughly 0.8 gm/cm3.
Wax is not soluble in water.
