See, itīs all about bounyancy. Steel made things usually sink, but steel 
cans donīt (thatīs what my teacher told me anyway. Iīm not sure, thatīs 
why I am asking.) I wish to know why they donīt sink. Iīve looked 
everywhere for an answer, but there is no satisfactory explanation. Is it 
possible that steel cans arenīt really made out of steel?
