The density of the body is given by

d = Mass/ Volume

= 50/20 = 2.5 g cm^-3.

Since density of the body is greater than water, therefore, the body will sink.

# The volume Of 50 g of a substance is 20 cm^3. If the density of water is 1 g m^-3, will the substance float or sink in water ? Justify your answer
