Don't every fruit floats? Because the density of an apple is less than the water's density..hehe

The same reason anything floats. It is less dense than water. Apples contain water, but also many other substances, and it is arranged in a kind of microscopic honeycomb of cells as the apple grew. This makes it less dense - also crunchy!

hi, I guess the apple has less density than that of the water so it floats
