They float in water.
they float because of density
Float the ball in water and calculate the displacement.
An 8 pound bowling ball will drop before a 10 pound bowling ball providing that the time that the 8 pound bowling ball is dropped is before the time of the 10 pound bowling ball.
Certain WEIGHTS of bowling balls float. Bowling balls have a volume of 6250 cm3. An equal amount of water would weigh 6.25 kilograms. A bowling ball that weighs less than 6.25 kilograms--8-pound, 10-pound and 12-pound balls--will float. 14-pound and 16-pound balls, having a density higher than 6.25 kilograms, will not float.
The weight of the ball is less than the weight of an equivalent volume of water...which is why anything floats.
I seriously doubt it.
it is in pound
no unless it is floating on a liquid with a density greater than that of the bowling ball.
a ten pound bowling ball and a 15 pound bowling ball.
When the solid has a lower density than the liquid, it will float in it. The density is the mass divided by the volume. A bowling ball, while heavy, has a lower density than water, so it will float in water. A pebble, while light, has a higher density than water, so it will sink. In general, the buoyant force is equal to the weight of the displaced fluid (Archimedes Law). This means that the upward force on a bowling ball in water is equal to the weight of the same volume of water. Since a bowling-ball sized amount of water weighs more than a bowling ball, the upward force is greater than the weight of the bowling ball, and the submerged bowling ball will have a net force in the upward direction.
A 16 pound bowling ball would be 71.172 newtons in weight.
