# Planet with a density so low that it could float on water?

Saturn has an "average density" of just 0.687 grams per cubic centimeter, which is less than water. The interior of the planet does not have as large or dense a rock core as the other gas giants, compared to its overall diameter. Like Jupiter, it generates a very high internal heat. Wiki User

Saturn has denstiy so low that it could float on water.   Wiki User

Saturn because it is the least densest of all the planets.   Wiki User

It is not a matter of heaviness or lightness, but density, the average density of Saturn is less than the density of water.   Wiki User

Saturn has a density less than that of water. And hence if you could find a bucket/pool big enough it would float on water.   Wiki User

### Which planetis so light that it could float in water?

A planet's weight does not determine whether it can float in water. It's density is what determines that. Your question should be "Which planet's density is so small that it could float in water?"

### Which planet could float on a giant planet?

The low density of Saturn would allow it to float in liquid water.

Saturn

### Which planet has its density so low that it could float in water?

Saturn has a very low density and it would be able to float on water. The density of Saturn is: 0.687 grams per cubic centimeter.

### What is the planet with an average density less then the density of water?

Saturn would float in water if you could find a big enough tub and the water to fill it.

Saturn.

### Would Uranus float in water?

No, the density of Uranus is 1.27 g/cm3 (the density of water is 1.00 g/cm3), therefore Uranus would sink. The planet that would float in water is the planet Saturn which has a density of 0.687 g/cm3.

### Which planet is so light it could float in water?

The planet Saturn

### What planet that a lower density than the density of water that causes it to float?

The density of Saturn is less than the density of water on Earth. But you'll never see Saturn float, because that would require a really gigantic pool.

### Why is it that this giant planet could float in water?

Saturn could float in water, because it has a density of 0.7 that of water. That is, however, a theoretical construct, because you would need an enormous pool of water, with a gravitational field much larger than anything we have, in order to achieve that state.

### Why is Saturn the only planet that can float?

Saturn is a gas giant planet, with a less-dense core than some other planets. The planet's overall density, is less than the density of water. Hence the quite correct old saying in astronomy" "If you could find a lake big enough to put it in, Saturn would float".

### What planet is s o light that it could float on water?

== == Saturn. With an average density of 0.7 grams/cubic centimeter,density less than that of water it could really float on water.
