Question #61620
Why a large ship floats on water and a small nail sinks in water
Expert's answer
The nail is solid, and its density is greater than that of water. At the same time, the ship has space inside and, therefore, its overall density is smaller than that of water. Thus, it is able to float on the water surface.
