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.

 Submitted by Charlie Rating: 2.3333 (9 votes) Solution: (Hide) Float it in a pool of mercury. Lead is about 11 times the density of water, but mercury is over 13 times as dense as water.
