physics question

Under which of the following circumstances do we know an object will float in water?

A. Specific Gravity > 1

B. Specific gravity < 1

C. Specific Gravity > 0

D. Specific Gravity < 0

Paul F.

Answer is B. Specific Gravity is less than 1. This means it is less dense than water. And the value of SG tells us how much of the object will be above the water. For Ice and Water it is about 7%.
