  • dENSITY

    Research: The word density means the degree of compactness of a substance. There is density in everything in your everyday life (matter.)The formula to find density is d=m/v.The density of solids and liquids is usually stated as g/cm3‚ while gases are usually stated as kg/m3. A real life example of density would be that ice floats on water because it is less dense than water‚ or it sinks because it is more dense than water. The only substance that breaks this rule is ice. Archimedes was

  • Density

    Lab Report Question- Why do few objects float in water where as others sink? Hypothesis- I think the objects that have a greater density than water will sink. So whichever object has a density more than 1g/cm³ will sink in water. This is known as relative density where the density of the substance is compared to the density of water. Hence‚ the object that has a greater mass: volume ratio than water will sink. Materials- * 1 measuring cylinder * 1 rectangular prism * 1 ball of plasticine

    PHYSICAL PROPERTIES: DENSITY Introduction According to the definition Density is the physical property that allows us to compare the mass of substances for a specific volume. In this Lab activity that took place in Deree College‚ Agia Paraskevi Campus we deal with the density of solids and density of liquids. The main purpose of this experiment is to understand what in reality density means‚ how we can measure it‚ how useful it is‚ what is the difference between density of solids and liquids

Throughout the lab I found out that both of the small and large silver rod‚ do not have the same density‚ and also found out that the gold rod is not real gold. My hypothesis is that since‚ the large and small silver rod has about the same density I believe that they would have about the same amount of volume. They both might displace the same amount

    10/1/13 Cubs Density The purpose of this experiment is to find out the density of the unknown solid object by determining the mass and the volume through the experiment. To do this we will be get the mass of the object and determine the volume of the object by placing it into a liquid. Then we will divide mass by volume and get its density.

  • Math: Density Calculate Density

    SCIENCE Density Calculate density‚ and identify substances using a density chart. Density is a measure of the amount of mass in a certain volume. This physical property is often used to identify and classify substances. It is usually expressed in grams per cubic centimeters‚ or g/cm3. The chart on the right lists the densities of some common materials. EQUATION: Densities of Substances Substance Density (g/cm3) Gold 19.3 Mercury 13.5 Lead mass density ϭ ᎏ volume

  • Determination of Densities

    Experiment: determination of densities Introduction The density of a sample of matter represents the mass contained within a unit volume of space in the sample. For most samples‚ a unit volume means 1.0 ml. The units of density‚ therefore‚ are quoted in terms of grams per milliliter (g/ml) or grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3) for most solid and liquid samples of matter. Density is often used as a point of identification in the determination of an unknown substance. The density of the unknown might

  • Experimental Density

    Performed: July 10‚ 2013 Group No.: 4 Date Submitted: July 17‚ 2013 Experiment #1: Measurements INTRODUCTION Density is a physical property of matter‚ as each element and compound has a unique density associated with it. The unit of Density is g/cm3 or g/mL. It is used to measure thr relative “heaviness” of objects with a constant volume. As defined‚ the formula for Density is Mass over Volume (ρ=m/v) and it can be rearranged to get the Volume (v=m/ρ) or Mass (m=ρv) of a certain substance

  • Density of Metals

    Density of Metals Problem: How does the mass and volume help determine the density of known metal samples? Hypothesis: When comparing the density of Zn(zinc) and Cu(copper)‚ you will find that Copper is more dense than Zinc. You can test this out by using the density formula D=m/v. Materials: * 2 metals (options: zn‚ al‚ or cu) * 3 samples of each metal (small‚ medium‚ and large) * Scale/Balance * Calculator * Water * Graduated Cylinder Safety: * Be prepared for your
