Given m = 50 g,

V = 20 cm^3,

Density = ?,

Density of body = m /V

= 50/20

= 2.5 g cm^-3.

Since density of the body is greater than the density of 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 cm^-3, will the substance float or sink in water? Justify your answer
