Fluid ReKap
Density can be found as mass per unit volume. p = m/v. For fluids, you may see
mass expressed as p*v. Remember that you can use that version of mass in any
equation that requires mass to solve. For instance:
KE for a solid = mv2
KE for a fluid
The density rule is the quickest way to determine if an object will float or sink; if
the density of the object is less than or equal to the density of the fluid, itll float,
and the weight of the object will equal the weight of the fluid displaced here.
