people say that light things float and heavy things sink,

but that cannot be true. A huge tree trunk floats and a

small stone sinks! The real difference between

materials like wood (which float), and materials like

stone and metal (which sink), is that wood is much

lighter when we compare objects that are the same

size. When we think about the mass of something, as

compared to its size, we are thinking about its density.

Density. The density of any material is the mass of one unit volume of the material. We normally

measure mass in grams and volume in cubic centimetres, so a common unit of density is grams

per cubic centimetre, g/cm3 (or g cm-3). The SI unit of density is kg/m3, but this is rarely used.

its mass in grams and its volume in cubic Mass (in grams)

centimetres. Then we calculate the density of the Density = --------------------- g/cm3

object by dividing its mass by its volume. Density

= mass volume. Volume (in cm3)

cm, a breadth of 2 cm and a height of 2 cm. The

mass of the block is 10 g. What is the density of

the wood?

The volume of the block is 5 2 2 = 20 cm3

The density of the wood is 10 20 = 0.5 g/cm3

When it is dropped into a measuring cylinder of

water, the level of the water goes up from 70 cm3

to 72 cm3. Find the density of the steel.

The volume of the spoon is 72 70 = 2 cm3

Material Density g/cm3 Floats or sinks

The density of the steel is 16 2 = 8 g/cm3

Air 0.001 floats

Floating and sinking. The table shows the Aluminium 2.7 sinks

densities of some common materials. Notice Cooking oil 0.8 floats

that the density of water is exactly 1.0 g/cm3. Copper 8.9 sinks

Glass 2.5 sinks

Now look at the density of things that float and Iron 7.9 sinks

the density of things that sink. Try to make a Lead 11.3 sinks

generalisation about floating and sinking in Mercury 13.6 sinks

water. You should be able to see that: Things Petrol 0.7 floats

that float in water have a density of less than 1 Ice 0.9 floats (just)

g/cm3, and things that sink in water have a Stone (silica) 2.6 sinks

density of more than 1 g/cm3. Water 1.0 -

Wood (hard) 0.8 floats

A ship made of iron floats because it is full of Wood (soft) 0.5 floats

air. If we divide the mass of the ship by its

volume, including all the space that is full of air, the average density of the ship is less than 1

g/cm3.

4. 10 cm3 of a plastic called PVC has a mass of 12 g;

1. (i) What is density? (ii) In what units is density 10 cm3 of another plastic called polythene has a

measured? (iii) How can we calculate density? mass of 9 g. Do these two plastics float or sink?

whether something will float in water or not?

3. Why does an empty cup float, but a cup full of

water sink?
