Volume and Density

**Everything in redshould go in your notes!


What is volume

What is Volume?

  • Volume is the amount of space occupied by an object.

    OR

  • The amount of space something takes up.


Which one has more volume

Which one has more volume?


Equation for volume

Equation for volume

  • We can find the volume of an object two ways.

    • First way:

      • Length x width x height

    • Second Way:

      • How much water gets displaced

        in a graduated cylinder


Labeling volume

Labeling Volume

  • When labeling volume, always use units cubed (because you are multiplying 3 measurements)

  • Example:

    • If a box is 2 cm long, 3 cm high and 2 cm wide

      • 2 x 3 x 2 = 12 cm3


Work on these problems

Work on these problems

  • If a box is 5 m long, 3 m wide and 1 m high, what is its volume?

    2. If a box is 8 cm long, 4 cm wide and 2 cm high, what is its volume?


What is density

What is Density?

  • Density is a comparison of how much matter there is in a certain amount of space.

  • Density is found by dividing the object’s mass by its volume.

    • D = M / V


Which one is more dense

Which one is more dense?

  • Demonstration: People in a square

  • How about this: Which square is more dense?


Which one is more dense1

Which one is more dense?

  • Now which one is more dense?


What is density1

What is density?

  • Density = mass OR mass ÷ volume.

    volume

  • Units for density: g

    cm3g / cm3

  • Why are these the units for density?


Let s try a density problem together

Let’s try a density problem together

  • Frank has a paper clip. It has a mass of 9g and a volume of 3cm3. What is its density?

    • 3 g/cm3

  • Frank also has an eraser. It has a mass of 3g, and a volume of 1cm3. What is its density?

    3 g/cm3


  • Work on these problems with your neighbor

    Work on these problems with your neighbor.

    • Jack has a rock. The rock has a mass of 6g and a volume of 3cm3. What is the density of the rock?

      2 g/cm3

    • Jill has a gel pen. The gel pen has a mass of 8g and a volume of 2cm3. What is the density of the gel pen?

      • 4 g/cm3


    Now try these on your own

    Now, try these on your own.

    • Alyssa has a watch. It has a mass of 4g and a volume of 2cm3. What is the density of the watch?

      • 2 g/cm3

  • Mia has a wallet. It has a mass of 15g and a volume of 5cm3. What is the density of the wallet?

    • 3 g/cm3


  • Liquid layers

    Liquid Layers

    • If you pour together liquids that don’t mix and have different densities, they will form liquid layers.

    • The liquid with the highest density will be on the bottom.

    • The liquid with the lowest density will be on the top.


    Liquid layers1

    Liquid Layers

    • Check out this picture. Which layer has the highest density?

    • Which layer has the lowest density?

    • Imagine that the liquids have the following densities:

      • 10g/cm3.3g/cm3.

      • 6g/cm3.5g/cm3.

    • Which number would go with which layer?


    Liquid layers try with your neighbor

    Liquid Layers – Try with your neighbor

    • Which liquid has the highest density?

    • Which liquid has the lowest density?

    • Which liquid has the middle density?


    Liquid layers try on your own

    Liquid Layers – Try on your own!

    • Imagine that the liquids on the right have the following densities:

      • 15g/cm3 10g/cm3

      • 3g/cm3 9g/cm3

      • 7g/cm3 12g/cm3

    • Match the colors to the correct densities.

    3g/cm3

    7g/cm3

    9g/cm3

    10g/cm3

    12g/cm3

    15g/cm3


    Review

    Review

    • What is the formula for density?

    • What happens if you pour together liquids that have different densities?

    • Will the liquid on the top have the highest or lowest density?

    • Will the liquid on the bottom have the highest or lowest density?
