Students in Grade 8 Science recently learned how a 103,300 ton air carrier can float on water. It has to do with buoyancy and density. Students tested various cubes of materials to see which ones would float and which ones would sink. Based on the cube's density being less than 1g/mL or more than 1g/mL determined the answer to SINK (greater than) or FLOAT (less than)- to answer the question! So keep the carriers density to less than 1g/mL and it will stay afloat!
