Yes, easily determined by displacement. Fill the cup, measure the water
loss. No matter the density or buoyancy it will equal the weight of the
water displaced. The hard part is cutting the finger off.
The weight of the water is equal to the weight of the finger if it
floats. The specific gravity of the human body is roughly 0.98 a bit
less than water, thus the ability to float.
Women can float, but young men sometimes cannot, chubby people can.
I'm truly surprised at some of the answers here whose home repair advice
is otherwise sound.
They say that nearly twenty percent of the people are functionally
illiterate and I've always contended that technical illiteracy is much
I was trying to get the scoop on the total weight of the Hindenberg
structural material, equipment, payload, including the Hydrogen or
worse yet Helium as raw material. Put it all together and get the
density right and it floats away on the breeze.
Are the passengers (payload) weightless? I don't think so. :)
