No, not sink to the middle as you describe it. If the specific gravity (density) of the object is less than that of water, it will float at the top of the water with just a portion below the surface. If the specific gravity of the object is greater than that of water, the object will sink to the bottom. If an object has density exactly that of water, then it will float anywhere in the water- you could place in the middle and it will float there, but there would be no reason for it to sink to the middle and then stay there.touqra said:Can an object sinks in a liquid, but not to the bottom of the liquid, just to the middle? Can Archimedes principle predicts whether the object sinks partially or sinks totally to the bottom?
