Need help on this one as well:
How can you predict whether an object will float or sink in a fluid if you don't know the force of its weight or the buoyant force?
Thanks! -MC

  • Physical Science -

    Yes, if you know its density. It floats if the density is less than that of the fluid.

    OK...thanks!
