#### Question

The volume of a plastic covered sealed box is 350 cm3 and the box has a mass 500 g. Will the box float on water or sink in water? what will be the mass of water displaced by the box?

#### Solution

Given:
Volume of box = 350 cm3
Mass of box = 500 g
Density of object = "Mass of Object"/"Volume of Object" = 500/350 = 1.43 g/ cm3

Now, we know density of water = 1 g/cm3
Since, density of box > density of water, therefore the object is going to sink in water.
Now, volume of liquid displaced = Volume of the object = 350 cm3

⇒ "Mass of liquid displaced"/"Density of liquid displaced" = 350   "cm"^3

⇒ Mass of liquid = 350 × 1 = 350 g

Is there an error in this question or solution?
