    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...

    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.

    Purpose The purpose of this experiment was to determine the density of an object by measuring its mass and volume. Hypothesis When the rubber stopper is dropped into the overflow can, the volume displaced (mL) will be equal to the number of grams of the rubber stopper.

    Introduction: Density is defined by its mass per unit volume, and is most often written in mathematical terms as; d = m / v Mass is usually given in grams, g, and volume is given in cubic centimeters, g/cm3, or, grams per milliliter, g/mL. Density is not a property that depends upon the amount of substance present. For example, one gram of lead and one ton of lead have the same density. Density also does depend on temperature. For instance cold water is denser than warm...

Defined by the Greek letter ρ, read as rho, density is a basic yet important physical property of matter. For a bulk body without accounting its existing pores and voids, density is represented by the ratio of its mass and volume. It is given by the equation ρ= massvolume 1. The SI unit of density is kg/m3. However, its CGS units, g/cm3 or g/ mL, are the most commonly used ones in the laboratory....
