B0.2 kilograms per metre
C2000 kilograms per cubic metre
12. An object has a mass of 10 grams and a volume of 5 ml. What will happen when the object is placed in water, and why?
ASink slowly, because the density of 2 g/mL is greater than that of water
BSink quickly, because the density of 50 g/mL is much greater than that of water
CFloat, because its density is 0.5 mL/g which is less than that of water
