#1

A solid body of mass 150 g and volume 250 ${{cm}^{3}}$ is placed in a jar containing water. Will it float or sink in water? (Density of water is 1 g${{cm}^{-3}}$)


#2

Given, mass, m = 150 g, volume, V = 250 ${{cm}^{3}}$

Density of the solid ยง =Mass of the solid (m) / Volume of the solid (V)
= 150 g / 250 ${{cm}^{3}}$ = 0.6 g ${{cm}^{-3}}$
