  • very much so
  • Yes, because it makes the water heavier. Or should I say Denser
  • I don't know, it depends what "floation" is.
  • 12-19-2016 All the water above the top of a body pushes down, and that point on the body pushes up with an equal force. All the water above a point on the bottom of a body pushes down, and that point on the body pushes up with an equal force. The difference between those two forces is called buoyancy. If buoyancy is equal or greater than what the body weighs, it floats. If less, it sinks. So yes, the density of the water is part of the action. Salt water is denser than pure. If you try to swim in the Great Salt Lake in Utah, the buoyancy will turn you over face down and float your corpse like a little ship. It is a balancing act to keep your face out of the water.
