Expert Answer
The glass stopper is less denser than the water. Thus, it will float on the water The method to determine the volume of solid which float on the water is as follows: - 
 
Volume of an object lighter than the liquid, which will float in the liquid:- 
 

 
If the object is lighter, it will float on water. In that case its volume can be found out with the help of a sinker. Pour some water in a measuring cylinder and lower the sinker (any body which sinks) into it. Note the level of water.


 

 
Once the water level is noted, now tie the object to the sinker and lower them into the measuring cylinder and note the reading of water level. The difference in water level will give you the volume of the object.
