  • Add several drops of red food color to each of two 250-mL Erlenmeyer flasks; fill them with warm tap water. (If tap water is not warm, heat some tap water on a hot plate to 40-45 °C.) Add several drops of blue food coloring to each of the other two 250-mL Erlenmeyer flasks; fill them with cool tap water. Predict the outcome when one flask is inverted over the other. Place a paper card on top of the vessel filled with warm water. Invert the flask making sure to hold the card in place. Stack it on top of one of the cool water flasks. Remove the card.

    • Density
  • BW (Bell Work): Why does ice float in water? The Density of water is 1g/cm 3 .  An object will float is the density is less than 1.  An object will sink if its density is greater than 1.
  • Description : A fish tank, Coke and Diet Coke are supplied. The Coke sinks while the Diet Coke floats.
  • DENSITY
    • Depends on:
        • Mass
        • Volume
        • D = m/v (g/cm 3 )
        • Mass usually expressed in grams
        • Volume usually expressed in cm 3 or liters, etc.
  • Density
    • Density compares the mass of an object to its volume
    • D = mass = g or g
    • volume mL cm 3
    • Note: 1 mL = 1 cm 3
    • What is density?
    • A material's density is defined as its mass per unit volume.
    • It is a measure of the mass of an object divided by its volume.
    • The principle of density was discovered by the Greek scientist Archimedes .
    • To calculate the density of an object, take the mass ( m ) and divide by the volume ( v ). This will give you the density in g/cm 3 .
  • What would take up more space??? A kilogram of feathers….. or a kilogram of steel? OR
  • “ Compactness”
    • Density is essentially, a measurement of how tightly matter is crammed together.
  • Gases
    • How much kinetic energy do the molecules have??
    • The greater the kinetic energy
    • …… the greater the volume
    • …… and the less dense that gas is!!
    • Therefore, cold air is more dense than warm air
    • Kinetic energy vs. potential energy
    Why is cold air denser than hot air?
  • Gases
    • Real life application…..
    • Low pressure weather system means warmer air tends to rise,
    • High pressure systems indicate a colder more dense air mass that will…….
    • SINK!!!
  • Density Large ball – 0.53 g/cm 3 Medium ball – 1.05 g/cm 3 Small ball – 0.82 g/cm 3
  • The “bounceability” of a ball depends on its density, not on its mass or on how big the ball is.
  • Have you wondered why hot air balloons rise? When the air is heated, it becomes less dense until the balloon's total density is less than that of the atmosphere; A hot air balloon is literally floating on the denser, colder air.
  • Do you know why volcanoes erupt? The main reason that magma rises to the surface to erupt at volcanoes is because it is less dense than the rocks that surround it.
  • A ship floating on water is a great illustration of the difference between mass and density. A ship must have a density of less than 1.0 g/cm 3 (the density of water), or it will sink. Ships have a large mass, because they are made of steel, but because they have a large volume, their density is less than 1.0 g/cm 3 . If enough mass is added to them such that their density goes above 1.0 g/cm 3 , they will sink.
  • You have a rock with a volume of 15cm 3 and a mass of 45 g. What is its density? D = m/v (g/cm 3 )
  • What is the mass of a 350 cm 3 sample of pure silicon with a density of 2.336 g/cm 3 ? Mass = density x volume x Mass = 2.336 g/cm 3 x 350 cm 3 Mass = 818 grams D = m/v (g/cm 3 ) m=d x v v=m/d http://serc.carleton.edu/mathyouneed/densitysp.html
  • Solving For Mass Original Formula   Multiply both sides by v                                                                      The "v's" cancel out                                                                Isolate for mass                                                                                       m = v x D                              
  • solving For Volume Original Formula                 Multiply both sides by volume                                 m = v x D  Divide both sides by density                          Adjusted formula                 
  • What would happen????
    • Mercury density = 13600kg/m 3
    • Lead density = 11340kg/m 3
  • Lead floats on liquid mercury!
  • Solids Ice vs. water…..
  • SOLIDS
    • Ice is less dense than water (which is why lakes and ponds have a thin layer of ice covering in winter, with water underneath)
    • Various rocks, woods, metals have a characteristic density specific to that substance
    Wouldn’t you like to have a bunch of THIS dense material?
  • Factors affecting Density
    • Temperature
    • Pressure
  • Factors affecting Density
    • Dissolved solids – in liquids
        • Concentration and kind of substances
  • DETERMINING DENSITY
    • Regular Shapes – mass, then determine the volume by formula
    • EX: cubes, cylinders, spheres, cones, etc.
    • Irregular shapes – mass, then measure displacement of a liquid (usually water) by that irregularly shaped object
  • The densities for some common substances are: Substance Density (gm/cu.cm) Air 0.0013 Wood (oak) 0.85 Water 1.00 Ice 0.93 Aluminum 2.7 Lead 11.3 Gold 19.3 Ethanol 0.94 Methanol 0.79
  • Volume Displacement (water displacement of Irregular shapes
    • A solid displaces a matching volume of water when the solid is placed in water.
    • 33 mL
    • 25 mL
    • How are Submarines like fish….
    • The swim bladder in bony fish control their relative density in order to rise or dive in the water….buoyancy
    • When air is added to the swim bladder, by diffusion through the blood vessels in the bladder walls, the fish becomes less dense overall
    • when air is removed fish become more dense
    • By changing the volume of air in the bladder, the fish’s density can be made equal to that of the surrounding water at a given depth.
