Density = Mass/Volume

For the sealed tin

Mass= 250 g
Volume= 400 cm³


            =0.625 g/cm³

Now, we know  that density of water is 1000 kg/cm³ or 1 g/cm³

As the density of the sealed tin is less than the density of water, it will float.   

It can be done by method as follows:

Specific Gravity (Relative Density with respect to water) = Density of sealed tin/Density of water

Thus the specific gravity of the sealed tin is 0.625 

So it floats on water.

Good answer
Density of object = mass/volume So density = 250/400 Density =0.625g /cc As we know that the density of water is 1g /cc so the weight of object is lesser as compared to the density of water hence it will float.
