The volume of a 500 g sealed packet is 350 cm cube . Will the packet float or sink in water if density of water is 1 g cm raised to 3 ? What will be the mass of water displaced by this packet ?

Steve
density is g/cm^3
500g/350cm^3 > 1 g/cm^3
since its density is > 1, it will sink.
the volume of water displaced is equal to the volume of the packet, whatever that is. The mass of water displaced is the same number, since its density is 1g/cm^3
