Public bowling alleys generally stock bowling balls from 8 to 16 lb, where the mass is given in whole numbers. Given that regulation bowling balls have a diameter of 8.6 in, which (if any) of these bowling balls would you expect to float in water?

$$8 \mathrm{lb}-12 \mathrm{lb}$$

Chemistry is the science of matter, especially its chemical reactions, but also its composition, structure and properties. Chemistry deals with atoms and their interactions with other atoms, and particularly with the properties of chemical bonds. Chemistry also involves understanding the properties and interactions of individual atoms and molecules for use in larger-scale applications.

In chemistry and physics, matter is any substance that has mass and takes up space by having volume. All everyday objects that can be touched are ultimately composed of atoms, which are made up of interacting subatomic particles, and in everyday as well as scientific usage, "matter" generally includes atoms and anything made up of them, and any particles and objects that act as if they have both rest mass and volume. However it does not include massless particles such as photons, or other energy phenomena or waves such as light or sound. Matter exists in various states (known as phases) that are defined by various physical properties, such as state of matter, phase, shape, and density. The Standard Model of particle physics and the general theory of relativity describe fundamental particles and the fundamental forces acting between them that control the structure and dynamics of matter.

figure out. What about the bowling ball will float. We need to calculate the density and calculate the density. We first need the volume. The volume could be calculated through 4/3 pi r Cubed. Where are the radius? Is the diameter 8.6 divided by two and we get 3.33 10 of the two inches cubed. But we need to convert that into centimeters cubed in order to get a volume that we can easily use to compare to the density of water. 5.46 10 to the third centimeters. Cubed the mass, then is the lightest bowling ball is going to be £8 multiplied by 454 grams per pound. We get 3.63 10 to the third crams. So if the mass is less than the volume than the density is going to be less than one, so the bowling ball will float. If the mass is less than the volume. The numerical value of the mass in grams is less than the numerical value of the volume. In Centimeters Cube for the £8 ball will float. The £9 ball will float the £10 ball will float, the £11 ball will float. The £12 ball is going to have a mass pretty much the same as the volume. Therefore, the density of the £12 ball is gonna be ride at one, and so, depending on the temperature, it may or may not float.
