#### Question

Volume of an object is 20 cm^{3} and the mass in 50 g. Density of water is 1 g cm^{-3} . Will the object float on water or sink in Water?

#### Solution

Given:

Volume of object = 20 cm^{3}

Mass of object = 50 g

Density of object = `"Mass of object"/"Volume of object" = 50/20` = 2.5 g/cm^{3}

Now, we know density of water = 1g/cm^{3}

Since, density of object > density of water, therefore the object is going to sink in water.

Is there an error in this question or solution?

Solution Volume of an Object is 20 Cm3 and the Mass in 50 G. Density of Water is 1 G Cm − 3. Will the Object Float on Water Or Sink in Water? Concept: Archemedes Principle.
