Lead Floats (Posted on 2004-02-25) Difficulty: 3 of 5
How can one get lead to float? Assume it is in a lump, not made into a boatlike shape, nor carried in a boatlike device.

A few more ideas | Comment 13 of 33 |
I like the ideas posted so far, so I thought I'd add a few.

1. The lead could be a hollow sphere.

(This might be considered a boat-like shape)

2. It could be full of small air bubbles - that's how some rocks can float.

3. It could have rods stuck into it, these rods could have baloons attached.

(I don't consider balloons boat-like and it is not '_in_' a boatlike device)
