# State the laws of floatation.

According to the law of flotation, an object will float in a liquid if its weight is equal to or less than the weight of the liquid displaced by it.

For any object immersed in a liquid:
If the average density of the object is less than that of the liquid, then the object will float in the liquid.
If the density of the object is equal to that of the liquid, then the object will float in the liquid but no part of it will be above the surface of the liquid.
If the density of the object is greater than that of the liquid, then the object will sink in the liquid.

1.if the density of the object is greater than that of water the object will sink.

2.if the density of water is greater than that of the object the object will float.

3.if the density of the object is equal to that of water the body wud be partly immersed in water

hope this helps :D

1.density of substance should be less than the density of liquid.

2.upthrust should be more than the gravitaional force.

I dont know which one of you is correct......But i wrote the same answer as written by Savannah.

thnxx for the thumbs up... and first i had written the answer nishant wrote but then i found the other one to be correct.

laws of floatation is archemedis principle[if an object immersed fully or partialy in a fluid it experiences an upward which is equal to the fluid displaced by it]
