A cube is measure 1 centimeter on each side and has a mass of 2 grams. Will it float on water?
No. The cube will sink.
The formula for density is given by
You were given a mass of 2 grams. If the side of one cube is 1 cm, then it's volume is
Therefore, the density of the cube is
The density of water is
Because the density of the cube > the density of water, the cube will sink.
