What is the definition of MATTER?
Anything that takes up space and has mass.
What is the tool used to measure the volume of a SOLID?
ruler
How are a mL and cm3 related to each other?
they are equal
Volume is an example of what type of property?
physical
Who first studied DISPLACEMENT?
Archimedes
Density =
the mass per unit of volume (expressed in g/ml)
You can change the density of something by changing...
the mass or volume.
Mass=
the amount of matter in an object (expressedd in grams)
Water has a density of
1 g/mL
If an object has density of LESS than 1 g/mL, it will
float
If an object has a density of MORE than 1 g/mL, it will
sink
If an object is equal to 1g/mL =
Neutrally buoyant
The density INCREASES if you INCREASE the ______ and the volume stays the same
mass
The density INCREASES if you DECREASE the ______ and the mass stays the same
volume
The density DECREASES if you INCREASE the _____ and the mass stays the same
volume
Something is LESS dense will _____ on something that is denser. (includes solids, liquids, and gases)
float
The densest substance will always sink to the _____.
bottom
1 gram of water has a volume of
1 mL
The density of water is
1 gram per ml (or cm3)
density= (formula)
mass/volume
