why does a ship floats on water, but a nail does not?
Asked by luckyali55 | 5th Oct, 2009, 08:58: PM
Because the overall density of the ship is less than the density of water, while for nail it's greater than the water density. And buoyancy depends on the density difference only and not volumes alone.
