There is not usually a relationship between weight and ability to float because A boat usually is very heavy and it floats.

Trystan said...

weight dose not matter.and nether dose size.

Aaron said...

Yes,because the weight of an object
means a lot. With out weight there
life will not be the same.

jeffrey said...

No because medal is heavy and it floats.

ashley said...

No weight does not matter. Because big boats are in water and they do not sink.

Fidel said...

Weight dose matter because of the size or shape.

Jose said...

Weight does matter because one's we tried it and weight does matter.

levy said...

No because the weigth does not matter cause some thing's are heavy thing in they can float.

Kirsten said...

There is not really a relationship. Shape is what really matters.

ariana said...

si porque depende del, peso que tiene que flotar,

Mckoy said...

Weight does matter because when we measure it we have to see what the measure it is.

jasmin said...

I think that weight does matter because with out the weight we
will not know if it will sink or
float.

Yolanda said...

Yes there is a relationship between the weight of the object and it's ability to float. It is that some objects may be heavy because they are big and some objects may be light because they are small and it doesn't matter if they are the same objects.

Alberto said...

Weight does not matter .what matters is what it's made of.Like if you put a big cylinder of aluminum it will sink,but if you put a small cylinder of aluminum it will sink.

ELIO said...

YES,becuase if it was made of meatl and it was small or big it will still sink becuasemeatl is heavy.

Macy said...

Yes the weight matters because .It will sink if it is heavier than the others.

Genesis said...

No weight doesn't matter because what matters is if it has a hole.

Dillion said...

no,weight doesn't matter because it depends on the material.

yessy said...

Yes,weight matters because with out
weight nothing would float.

Anahi said...

No weight doesn't
matter because it has to be plastic
and it has to have a hole.

Keith said...

No weiht does matter because not all hevy things sink.

Jose said...

yes it matter because it makes things
float and sink .

Kali said...

No,weight doesn't matter because
not every material is the same.

Ismael said...

Yes weight does matter because the acrylic cylinder and the aluminum
cylinder sank.

amber said...

Yes,because if it was heavy then
you could not lift a heavy box.

Alexis said...

Yes,weight matters because without weight nothing would float.

Austin said...

No weight doesn't matter because
the small acrylic cylinder weighed
the same as the small polyethylene
cylinder and it sank.

savanna said...

yes weight maters becuse if you think the weight can give you the
anceres.

Cheyenne said...

Yes, weight matters because metal
sinks but wood floats.
Wood is not heave and metal is heave.

Jesse said...

Yes,weight matters becase without it everything would be light.

Ben said...

Weight does not matter because i did the experiment.One of the things i used was 9 paper clips and floated.Theres another object that weighed 10 paper clips and floated.

Kyle said...

yes because some boats floated there is no on bottom them.

levi said...

NO because one could way the same
omount.

Wade said...

No, I think weight doesn't
matter because something small
and something large made out of
the same material can weigh
something different.

Tanner said...

Yes because when logs fall in the water some of them float and some of them sink.

Francisco said...

yes cause if one is the same weight and the other is to will both will float.unless if you don't level it.

Blanca said...

The weight does not matter because of the weight of the paper clips.The first object i studied weighed 4 paper clips and sunk.The next object weighed 2 paper clips and sunk also.

Colby said...

Weight is important because if we did not weigh any thing our bodies would not be stable enough to hold us up .

Ben said...

I think the weight does not matter because i did the experiment and weighed the objects. Its weird because some objects floated and weighed more then 10 paper clips. I also weighed some that weighed under 5 paper clips and they sunk. I think the materials matter more then the weight of the object.

Florinda said...

Yes, because if the weight is light
it can float.

devin said...

Some things weigh more than others so they sink. some weigh less so it may float others may sink. because the size sometimes matters because it may be small enough to float.
