If a plastic ball floats on the surface of water on the earth, will it float or sink if it is placed in a bucket of water on the moon?

The plastic ball will float if placed in a bucket of water on Moon. This is because if the ball floats on water on earth means that the ball has mass and experiences an upthrust. The same ball when placed in a bucket of water on Moon will have the same mass but the weight of the ball reduces (W= mg) and experiences an upthrust. Also, upthrust is directly proportional to 'g' and 'g' is less on Moon (1.63 m/s2) so the ball floats.

- When a piece of cork is put into the water it starts floating on the surface of water due to the upward buoyant force from water.
- you are provided with a piece of rock and common laboratory equipments.how will you proceed to find its density.
- what are fluids?
- What is the unit of density?
- What happens if the bouyant force of liquid is equal to or greater than or less than the solid object which is to be immersed into the liquid
- what is the relationship between boyant force and displaced water
- pressure at certain depth in river water is p1.,same depth in sea water is p2.which of following is correct? a)p1=p2 b)p1>p2 c)p1<p2 d)p1-p2=atmospheric pressure
