The answer hinges on Archimedes' principle wiki. If the object is denser than water it is more massive than the water that it displaces. This means that the object experiences greater gravitational force than the water and so sinks. Share Cite Improve this answer FollowDoes water sink or float?
The relationship is a bit more complicated - but easily derived. Of course it does; if something is denser than water, it sinks, but if it's less dense than water, it floats. Of course it does; if something is denser than water, it sinks, but if it's less dense than water, it floats.What happens when an object has a lower density?
My idea is: an object with a lower density has a spread out mass distribution. Since water's density is 1 g/cm , when you have an object with density lower than water's, it exerts a force on the water due to gravity, but because at every point the weight of the object is less than that of water, it is unable to push the water away.What happens if an object weighs more than the water It displaces?
But, if the object weighs more than the water it displaces, the buoyant force acting on it will be less than gravity, and it will sink. How compact, or closely packed, an object is determines how much water it will displace and, therefore, whether it will float or sink.
