The volume of 50 g of a substance is 20 cm3 . If the density of water is 1 g cm-3 , will the substance float or sink?

##### Solution :-

To find the Density of the substance the formula is

Density = (Mass/Volume)

Density = (50/20) = 2.5g/cm3

Density of water = 1g/cm3

Density of the substance is greater than density of water. So the substance will float.
