Seriously your skull (bone) would not float in water it has a density of 1.75, water is just 1.0 :)

One can measure the volume of ones head with a bucket, but not the weight
How thick is the skull, how much space in the head is not brain?
I saw a horses brain, it was small, about the size of two fists

Bones don't float, that much is a given.
It's the volume of the complete head that I measured.
Mainly empty cavities - nose, throat, ears etc.

How much does a human brain weight? No doubt mine is quite light, as the best things come in small packages. :wink:
