Nadine Leah Hurd CHEM-136 Professor Boyke January 30, 2008 Density and Specific Gravity Pre-Lab Study Questions 1. What property of oil makes it float on water? The density of oil is what makes it float on water since it is less dense. 2. Why would heating the gas in an air balloon make the balloon rise? Heating the gas in an air balloon makes the balloon rise because the heated air inside of the balloon is less dense than the colder air outside of the balloon. 3. What is the difference between density and specific gravity? Density is the comparison of an object’s mass to its volume while specific gravity is the ratio between the density of a substance with the density of water. 4. How does a graph help us interpret scientific data? A graph helps us interpret scientific data because it gives us a visual of the information as well as shows you relationships between specific sets of data. A. Density of a Solid
