Question:

Liquids generally have lower density as compared to solids. But you must have observed that ice floats on water. Find out Why?

Answer:

It happens because, particles of ice are adjacent to each other, but due to separation of water molecules, water has no fixed shape and when we put ice into water, the ice removes volume of water’s less than it’s weight. So, we observe that ice floats on water.
