A B C D E water level a) Rank the blocks in order of their densities indicating any equality. Greatest: Least Reason: b) Rank the blocks according to their weight indicating any equality. Greatest: Least Reason: :3 Ed L3: '3 L 0 UK Question 2 A beaker of water sits on a balance. A block of ma erial ’3 a H to is lowered into the water on the end of a string and is held suspended in the water. The initial balance reading, with the block out of the water is 7 _ 0.780 kg. When the block is suspended in the water, the reading changes by 0.040 kg. a) When the block is in the water, is the balance reading greater or smaller than the initial value of 0.780 kg? b) What is volume of the block? C) Is it possible to find the mass of the block from the information given? If so, what is the value? If not what additional information do you need?

Your siphon tube rises 45.0 cm above the bottom of the sink and then descends 85 cm to a pail as shown. The siphon tube has a diameter of 2.80 cm. a) Assuming that the water level in the sink has almost zero velocity, estimate the water’s velocity when it drops into the pail. b) Estimate how long it will take to empty the sink. c) When the water first starts to flow, what is the pressure in the siphon tube at its highest point, 45.0 cm above the bottom of the sink? d) Theoretically, what is the greatest possible height that the siphon can lift water?
