    water has a density = 1000 kg/m³ = E3•E3 grams / E2•E2•E2 cm³ = 1.0 g/cc

    2 g/cc > 1 g/cc so object will sink in water

    having 20 g the object must have a volume = 10 cc in order to have 2 g/cc density

    As water has a density of 1g/cc., this object will sink in it.

    It has a volume of 10cc. (20/2).
