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.

Hmm... might as well just put the lump of lead on the table and announce to the world that it's floating on wood...

Just a thought (not a scientist here, just going through random problems), but if the amount of lead were small enough, would surface tension on some plain ol' H2O hold it up?

Peace, Rawlyn.
