# 6. The volume of 50 g of a substance is 20 cm. If the density of water is 1g/cm, will the substance float or sink?

mass of the object = 50 grams

volume of the object = 20 cm³

density = mass / volume

= 50 / 20

= 5 / 2 = 2.5 g/cm³

and since ,

density of the object > density of water

2.5 > 1

therefore the object will sink in water .

i hope it helps......................................^_^

The object will sink since it has a density more than that of water
