Question

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?

Solution

Given:
Volume of object = 20 cm3

Mass of object = 50 g

Density of object = `"Mass of object"/"Volume of object" = 50/20` = 2.5 g/cm3

Now, we know density of water = 1g/cm3

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?
