One litre of feathers would have far less mass than one litre of lead.

If inserted into the water as a solid "blob" then it will sink - unless it dissolves first. But, if because of the shape, the mass of water displaced by whole object is greater than the mass of the object, it will float - just as ships made of metal do.

The density of an object is its mass divided by its volume. If that is less than the density of water, it will float; if greater it will sink

If an object placed in water sinks - then it has a density greater than water.

A density greater than that of water (which varies with temperature).

The volume of lead will be less than one gram of water. Lead is denser than water, so it takes up less space for the same mass.

The mass of feathers is far greater than the lead. amount = mass So you will have a huge pile of feathers compared to a small chunk of lead to equal a pound

Gasoline has greater mass than water because gasoline is less dense than water, meaning the same volume of gasoline weighs more than the same volume of water.

Lead (11,34 g.cm^-3) has a greater density than water (1 g.cm^-3) so for the same volume of water and lead, lead will be heavier. The "-3" should be written as an exponent but it won't allow me

Not sure that either water or gasoline have litters, but 1.00 litres of water does have greater mass than 1.00 litres of gasoline.

10 kg is greater than 6 kg. kg is the unit of mass. Hence feather has more mass than lead in this case.

Lead weight sinks in water since its density is greater than that of water.

Because the mass of the volume of water they displace is greater than their mass, making their effective density less than that of water.

The molecules of lead are more massive and are more densely packed together than those of wood.

An atom of lead has more mass than an atom of gold. This is because lead has a greater atomic mass than gold, due to the larger number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in a lead atom compared to a gold atom.

No, lead is a dense material and will sink in water. The density of lead is greater than the density of water, so it will not float.
