Fact of the Day Image Jan. 25th

The Dead Sea is a small sea located in between Israel and Jordan. It has 10 times more salt in the water than all of the oceans in the world! In fact, that saltwater makes it so that a 15 pound bowling ball can float in that water! It is all because of the density. When the water is more dense than the object on it, the object will float. The salinity, or how much salt that is in the water, is very high in the Dead Sea’s waters. The salt makes the water denser than the bowling ball, whihc allows it to float! Humans can also float in the dead sea without much effort!
