Will a 600g bottle with a volume of 480cm3 float in water(density of water = 1g/cm3)? What mass of water will be displaced by the bottle?

Given,

Mass of bottle = 600g

Volume of bottle = 480 cm3

Thus, density of bottle = 600/480

=1.25cm3

Since 1.25 > 1 , the bottle wonâ€™t float.

Volume of water displaced = 480cm3

Therefore, weight of water displaced = volume x density = 480g.
