Experiment with oranges

Today we propose you to do an experiment with your children. It is very simple, you only need two orangesOne with peel and the other peeled, as well as a transparent container with water.

One of these oranges will sink and the other one will float. Which one?

Drop the orange with peel into the container with water, and then the peeled orange, and you will see....

Although the orange with the peel is heavier, it will float and the water rises. While the orange without peel will sink. But why? The peel retains air and the bubbles make it less dense than water, so it floats. It is the principle of buoyancy.
