Can you make iron to float? How?
YES , you can make iron to float , if its shape is such that the water desplaced by it has equal or more than weight of that iron . Many iron ships are there which floats on water.
As you can clearily see in the figure that the shape of iron veseel is such that the weight of water displaced is much more then the weight of iron vessel itself.
EXAMPLE - An iron ship floats because it is shaped such that it will contain air within its hull and therefore the average density of the ship as a whole including cavities and all the air space is less than the water and therefore it floats.

Iron sinks in water, wood floats in water. If we tied an iron piece to the same volume of wood piece, and dropped them in water, will it sink or float? Make a guess and find out whether your guess is correct or wrong with an experiment. Give reasons.AP - Physics & Chemistry
