What measures density

1.3g/mL

The density is important; for floating an object must have a density under the water density (1 g/cm3).

The floating liquid will have a lower density than the liquid it is floating on.

The floating liquid will have a lower density than the liquid it is floating on.

mass of a substance is constant at any place in the universe.the reason for floating is its density is less than density of medium in which it is floating

density= mass/volumedensity
