Why we can swim more easier in sea water rather than in river water

Asked by 15th February 2009, 11:28 AM
Answered by Expert


Sea water contains dissolved salts due to which the density of sea water is more than that of river water; hence the upthrust exerted on the swimmer in sea water is more which makes the swimming easier than that in river water.
