  2. Increasing the density makes it sink.
    mass = volume x density or
    density = mass/volume.
    Increasing v decreases d.

    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
