## What happens when objects are placed in water?

When objects are placed in water, some will sink and some will float, when a heavier object like a rock or Golf ball is in the water it will sink to the bottom because it is heavier than the water that is holding them up.

## What is the density of a golf ball?

In Saltwater, the density is 1.025 g/ml, it is heavier than a Golf ball so the Golf ball will float. Density is the measure of how much material there is in a set space. I will explain why a Golf ball floats, and how you can make a Golf ball float in water, and what happens to a Golf ball in the water. Read on to find out.

## Why do balls sink in water?

If the water contains salt, then the ball will sink because saltwater has more density than fresh water. Secondly, there are different kinds of balls made with different materials which have varying densities and weights.

## Why do golf balls float in water?

Golf Balls Float in slat Water because they are less dense than the water. The air inside a golf ball creates negative pressure which is denser than the pressure of the water outside, causing it to float on top. This same principle also works for styrofoam cups and why they don’t sink either.
