Density exercises

  1. 1. COLEGIO BRITÁNICO INTERNACIONAL SCIENCE DENSITY EXERCISESINFORMATION REQUIRED FOR HOMEWORK: Table 1.- Densities of Common SubstancesSubstance Density (g/cm3) Substance Density (g/cm3)Helium (gas) 0.0001663 Zinc (solid) 7.13Oxygen (gas) 0.001331 Silver (solid) 10.50Water (liquid) 1.00 Lead (solid) 11.35Pyrite (solid) 5.02 Mercury (liquid) 13.55Gold (solid) 19.32 Iron (solid) 7.9Tin (solid) 7.3How to convert Mass into Weight: 1 N = 100 gEXAMPLE:A student has a mass of 45,000 g. how much does this student weigh in Newtons?STEP 1: Write the information given to you. 45,000 gSTEP 2: Write the conversion factor to change grams into newtons. 1 N = 100 gSTEP 3: Write the equation so that grams will cancel. 45,000 g x = 450 N
  2. 2. How to calculate Volume:How to calculate Density:D= DensityM= MassV= VolumeEXAMPLE:What is the density of an object whose mass is 25 g and whose volume is 10 cm3?STEP 1: Write the equation for density.STEP 2: Replace m and V with the measurements given in the problem, and solve. = = 2.5EXERCISES:1. Suppose you have a lead ball whose mass is 454 g. What is the ball´s volume?2. What is the mass of 15 mL sample of mercury?3. What is the density of an object that has a mass of 350 g and a volume of 95 cm3? Would this object float in water? Explain.
  3. 3. 4. The density of an object is 5 g/cm3, and the volume of the object is 10 cm3. What is the mass of the object?5. What is the volume of a book that has a width of 10 cm, a length that is 2 times the width, and a height that is half the width? Remember to express your answers in cubic units.6. A jar contains 30 mL of glycerin (whose mass is 37.8 g) and 60 mL of corn syrup (whose mass is 82.8 g). Which liquid is on top= Show your work and explain your answer.7. Which substance has the lowest density? a. Helium b. Pyrite c. Mercury d. Gold8. Imagine that you had discovered a new element, and you want to find its density. It has a mass of 78.8g and a volume of 8 cm3. To find the density of the element, you must divide the element`s mass by its volume. What is the density of the element? Show your work. a. 0.102 g/cm3 b. 0.98 g/cm3 c. 9.85 g/cm3 d. 630.4 g/cm39. Many soft drinks come in bottles that contain about 590 mL. If the density of a soft drink is about 1.05 g/mL, what is the mass of the drink? Show your work. a. 0.0018 g b. 498.2 g c. 561.9 g d. 619.5 g10. If you have 150 g of pure gold and the density of gold is 19.32 g/cm3, what is the volume of your gold nugget? a. 2,898 cm3 b. 7.76cm3 c. 0.98 cm3 d. 0.13 cm311. Three objects have a mass of 16 g each. But their volumes differ. Object A, a liquid, has a volume of 1.2 mL. Object B, a solid, has a volume of 3.2 cm3. Object C, another solid, has a volume of 1,9cm3. Which object is the least dense? Show your work.
