3A: Seawater Temperature, Salinity, and Density Started: May 24, 2009 5:16 PM Questions: 31     1. 3A-1  (Points: 1)      According to the diagram, its density (to the fourth decimal place) is _____ g/cm3. (Please type the number  only. Do not include the units g/cm3.) 1.    Save Answer     2. 3A-2  (Points: 1)      IT's density (to the fourth decimal place) is now ________ g/cm3. 1.    Save Answer     3. 3A-3  (Points: 1)      This experiment shows that at a constant salinity, raising the temperature of seawater causes its density to  _____________. a. increase b. decrease
