Solution: Imagine that you place a cork measuring 1.30 cm x 5.50 cm x 3.00 cm in a pan of water and that on top of the cork you place a small cube of lead measuring 1.15 cm on each edge. The density of cork is

Problem

Imagine that you place a cork measuring 1.30 cm x 5.50 cm x 3.00 cm in a pan of water and that on top of the cork you place a small cube of lead measuring 1.15 cm on each edge. The density of cork is 0.235 g/cm3, and the density of lead is 11.35 g/cm3. Will the combination of cork plus lead float or sink?
