Homework Help: Science/Math

Posted by Paul on Sunday, April 24, 2011 at 6:39pm.

We have 30 grams of clay. We understand that Density=Mass/Volume. We understand that the Density of water is 1.0 and in order for the clay boat to float in the water Density needs to be less than 1.0. So my question is using 30 grams of clay what design will allow me to hold the most pennies and still have the clay boat float? We understand that we are trying to build the shape that gives us the most volume, but we are trying to mathematically come up with the perfect dimensions. Please help.
Thanks,
Paul
