You are playing a game called "Will It Float?" In this game, you are given a large, square can of tuna. If you know the density of water, what is the minimal information you need to decide if the tuna will float in the water?

2 Answer

  • The only information you would need to decide if the can will float is the density of the can, which requires knowing the mass and volume. If the density of the can is less than one, the can will float. if it is greater than one, it will not float, as water's density is one.
  • the mass and the volume of the can of tuna
