1. EDEXCEL IGCSE PHYSICS 5-1Density and Pressure THIS POWERPOINT IS NOT DUE FOR COMPLETION UNTIL JULY 2012 December 4th 2010 All content applies for Triple & Double Science Edexcel IGCSE Physics pages 162 to 168

2. Section 5: Solids, liquids and gases b) Density and pressure recall and use the relationship: density = mass / volume ρ = m / V describe how to determine density using direct measurements of mass and volume recall and use the relationship: pressure = force / area p = F / A understand that the pressure at a point in a gas or liquid which is at rest acts equally in all directions recall and use the relationship: pressure difference = height × density × g p = h × ρ × g Edexcel IGCSE Specification

3. Density (ρ) density = mass volume ρ = m / V unit = kg m-3 Note: 1 g cm-3 is the same as 1000 kg m-3
