Expert Answer

Step 1

Given:

Mass of the object = 33 g

Volume of the object = 47 cm3

Step 2

Finding if the object will float or sink in the water:

An object floats or sinks in the water, depending upon the density of the object and water. If the density of the ob...

Mass of the object 33 g
0.033 kg
Volume of the object = 47 cm3 = 0.000047 m3
0.033kg
0.000047m3
Density of the object =
702.13kg/m2
Density of the water 997kg m2
As the density of the object is less than the density of the water
hence the object will float in the water
