1 kg sheet of tin sinks in water but if the same sheet is converted into a box or boat, it floats. Give reason.

Answer:

The sheet of tin sinks in water because the density of tin is higher than that of water. When the same sheet of tin is converted into a box or a boat, then due to the trapping of lot of 'light' air in the box or boat, the average density of the box or boat made of tin sheet becomes lower than that of water and hence it floats in water.
