How can a penny float?

A penny will not float in water, mainly because it is denser than water. When the penny is placed in water, it displaces a volume of water equal to its own volume. Since the penny weighs more than the water it displaces, it will sink.So, in order for the penny to float, you must find a liquid that is denser than solid copper -- or whatever metal or alloy a penny is made of. Mercury -- which is a liquid at room temperature -- is denser than copper. Hence, a penny will float in mercury.Possibly surface tension may allow it to float.

when the penny is reacted with HCl, there must be somesort of area where the copper on the outside of the penny is removed so that the HCl can react with the zinc inside because HCl does not react with copper. Once the HCl reacts with the Zn inside, it will dissapear and therefore become less dense then the ZnCl2 that is formed which causes the penny to float
