Such a substance will float on water, if that's of any help.
No, density is simply a property of a substance. It's how "heavy" something is. Water, for example, has a density of 1 gram per milliliter. Meaning every milliliter weighs one gram. Some are much more (Mercury), some are much less (Air).
Milligrams versus millilitersOne milliliter of water weighs one gram. There are 1000 milligrams in one gram.One milliliter of other substances will weigh more or less, depending upon their densities. A millilter of gasoline, for example, weighs less, and a milliliter of mercury weighs more -- WAY more. (No pun intended.)Milligram is a unit of mass; milliliter is a unit of volume. You can't directly convert the two. If you know the density of a substance, you can say, for example, "1 milliliter of water has a mass of 1 gram (1000 milligrams)", or "1 milliliter of lead has a mass of about 11 gram".
No. That's the beauty of "density". It's a characteristic of the substance, and the size of the sample has no effect on it. As long as the sample is pure, a pinhead of it has the same density as a truckload of it.
The density should be identical regardless of the quantity, because "density" is what's called an intrinsic property; it doesn't matter how much of the substance there is.
The density of a substance is compared to the density of water so that we would know if the substance is less dense or if it is denser.
the object with less density rises to the top of the object
In order to float on water, the object would have to have a density of less than 1g/mL, which is stated 1gram per milliliter, not over milliliter.
The density of a solid not completely submerged in water is less than 1 gram per milliliter, the density of water. Only the volume of the submerged portion will displace the water and the portion on floating above the level of water cannot be measured.
depends on the substance. generally, the density of a substance decreaces when heated, with the exception of ice, which is less dense than water.
Density. An object will float in a substance if its density is less than the density of the substance. The density of water is 1 kg /L or 1 g/ cm3. Anything with a density less than this will float.
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
That indicates that the average density of an egg is greater than the density of pure water but less than that of salt water. Salt water has more density the regular/pure water and the more salt you add the more it floats.
Less than that of the substance it is floating on.
You mean density less than 1 gram per cubic centimeter. The definition of the SI unit: Density of water is 1000kilograms per cubic, that is 1 gram per cubic centimeter. So, a material with a density less than water means that it swims in water and does not sink.
It depends upon the substance and its density. One cc of pure water weighs one gram, but one cc of oil weighs less than one gram and one cc of syrup probably weighs more than one gram.
This question does not have a single answer, Gram is a weight measurement, Liter is a liquid measure. (Liter = volume (size) and gram = weight. They measure two different things.) It depends on the substance (water for example has 1000 grams to a liter, other substances have more grams or less grams to a liter depending on a property (called the density measured in grams / liter) of the substance. In a nutshell, the answer varies from one substance to another and it depends on the density of the substance (the density in turn decreases with increase in temperature). The same substance will have fewer grams per liter at a higher temperature.
Any special name: less dense than water, low density.
In the kitchen, for all practical purposes, a gram and a millilitre are the same. ( unless you are comparing widely differing things like molasses and flour)
Assuming they are floating on water, the density of the substance would be LESS than 1.
The density of water is roughly 1 gram/cm3. If the density of the substance is less than that, then a solid lump of it can float. Otherwise it can't, but you can form the lump into shapes that can float, just as plate steel is formed into the shape of cruise ship or an aircraft carrier.
"Relative gravity" is used more or less as a synonym for density; it bears no direct relation with "gravity" as such. So, you would have to specify, "specific gravity [or density] of what substance"."Relative gravity" is used more or less as a synonym for density; it bears no direct relation with "gravity" as such.

We infer that the density of the block is less than that of water
