How does wood float in the water?

 The wood float in the water because the wood has a lower density than water, and the density is defined as the amount of mass divided by volume $\left(D=\frac{M}{V}\right)$. The cause for these phenomena is the Buoyancy force.

It is an upward force exerted by a fluid that opposes the weight of an immersed or submerged object.

Archimedes’s law states that a body immersed in water displaces its volume of water, and if this displaced volume of water weighs more than the body immersed, the body will float. If it weighs less than the body, the body will sink.
