# A Body Floats in Kerosene of Density 0.8 X 103 Kg/M3 up to a Certain Mark. If the Same Body is Placed in Water of Density 1.0 X 103 Kg/M3, Will It Sink More Or Less ? Give Reason for Your Answer. - CBSE Class 9 - Science

#### Question

A body floats in kerosene of density 0.8 x 103 kg/m3 up to a certain mark. If the same body is placed in water of density 1.0 x 103 kg/m3, will it sink more or less ? Give reason for your answer.

#### Solution

The body will sink less in water because the density of water (1,000 kg/m3) is more than the density of kerosene (800 kg/m3).

Is there an error in this question or solution?
