Certain types of bowling balls when places in water float Explain how this is possible?

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.

When will a solid float in a liquid?

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.
