A piece of wood floats on water. (True or False)



It floats because it weighs less than the amount of water it would have to push out of the glass if it sank. Wood, cork, and ice are all less dense than water, and they float; rocks are denser, so they sink.If you compared the weight of wood and an equal amount, or volume, of water, the sample of wood would weigh less than the sample of water . This means that wood is less dense than water . Since wood is less dense than water , wood floats in water , no matter how big or small the piece of wood is.
