GEL2007 If you take the same volume of different substances, then they will weigh different amounts.
Wood Water Iron 1 cm3 8.00 g What is Density? What 1 cm3 0.50 g 1 cm3 1.00 g IRON Q) Which has the greatest mass and therefore the most dense? Density is the Mass per unit Volume Density Equation:
g or kg Density =
gcm3 or kgm3 Mass Volume
cm3 or kg3 m ρ V ρ = m V
V = m = 0.25 = 0.000250m3 ρ 1000 V = m = 0.25 = 0.000272m3 ρ 920 Example: Q) Liquid water has a density of DENSITY OF A REGULAR SOLID DENSITY
m = 240 g 2.0 cm ρ = m = 240 =10.0 g/cm3
3.0 cm V 24 4.0 cm Find the Mass of the solid on a balance. Measure the three lengths and calculate the Volume. (ie V = l x w x h ) Calculate the Density.

Fill the Measuring Cylinder with Water to a known Volume. Add the Object. Work out the Volume of Water that is displaced. Calculate the Density. OR use a Eureka Can to find the Volume. Find the mass of the solid on DENSITY OF AN IRREGULAR SOLID SOLID m = 440 g 40.0 cm3 ρ = m = 440 =11.0 g/cm3 V 40 a balance. Add water until just overflowing. Place a Measuring Cylinder under the spout. Add the Object. Collect the Water and read off the Volume. Calculate Density DENSITY DENSITY
