Density. Mathematic Definition: D=m/v. Density is the amount of mass in a given volume. Volume. Particle Definition:. A measure of how tightly packed matter is . Liquid. Gas. Solid. Example of how to calculate density.
D=m/v D= 500g/315ml D=1.59g/ml
Liquid A: D=m/v D= 467g/243ml D=1.92g/cm3
Liquid B: D=m/v D= 27.2g/12ml D=2.27g/cm3
M= D x V
M= 13.6 g x 5 cm3
V= 20g /13.6 g
M=d x V M= 7.87 g/cm3 x 45cm3 M=354.15g
V= m/D v= 5,000g/ 8.94g/cm3 v=559.28cm3
The difference between the water and the object it about half; that is why it is about half underwater.
The difference between the water and the object is .1; that is why only a tenth of the block is sticking out of the water
The density of the water and the object is the same; it can be placed anywhere in this liquid and it will stay. Think of a fish!
