An anvil floats in mercury

The user Cody Don placed an anvil 50 kg into a basin with mercury, to show us that the anvil floats. This phenomenon occurs because the mercury density is almost twice the density of iron. Also, the density difference is such, makes the anvil floating mercury much more easily than a stick in the water.

This is “the force of gravity”, only density.
