Density Please remember to photocopy 4 pages onto one sheet by going A3A4 and using back to back on the photocopier OP2 Syllabus Measure mass and volume of a variety of solids and liquids and hence determine their densities.

Student Notes We learned how to measure the mass and volume of objects in a previous chapter. To measure density we simply use the following formula:

Mass The unit of density is the kg/m3 (pronounced kilogram per metre cubed) or g/cm3 Density Volume

Mass, Volume and Density: Exam questions 1. [2008 OL] (i) Complete the equation in the box below using the words on the right. Density = (ii) If the mass of a stone is 20 g and the volume of the stone is 10 cm3, find the density of the stone. 2. [2007 OL] A block of metal has the measurements shown on the right. The mass of the metal block is 21 g. (i) Write the letter V beside the value of the volume of the block. (ii) Write the letter D beside the value of the density of the block. 3. [2009 OL] The mass of a metal block is 14.7 g. It has a volume of 7 cm3. (i) Name the instrument you would use in the laboratory to find the mass of the block. (ii) Write the letter D beside the value of of the density of the block. (iii) Write the letter U beside the unit used to measure the density.

MASS VOLUME

4. [2009] A pupil measured the volume of a potato using the items of laboratory equipment, labelled A and B as shown in the diagram. (i) Name the items labelled A and B. (ii) The potato had mass 175 g and volume 125 cm3. Calculate the density of the potato. Give the units of density with your answer. (iii) Why did the potato sink in the water? 5. [2007] Ice floats on water but ice sinks in ethanol (an alcohol). Use this information to compare the density of ice with (i) the density of water; (ii) the density of ethanol. Exam Solutions 1. (i) Density = Mass / Volume (ii) Density = 20 /10= 2 g/cm3 2. (i) V: 10 cm3 (ii) D: 2.1 g cm-3 3. (i) Electronic balance / weighing scales (ii) Density = 14.77 = 2.1 (iii) Unit = g/cm3 4. (i) Item A is an overflow can Item B is a graduated cylinder (ii) Density = 175/125 = 1.4 g/cm3 (iii) Because it is denser than water 5. (i) Ice is less dense than water (ii) Ice is more dense than ethanol

Other Test Questions 1. What is meant by the term density? 2. What is the formula used to calculate the density of an object? 3. What are the units of density? 4. Draw a diagram of the apparatus used to measure the density of an irregular-shaped object? 5. Describe with the aid of a diagram an experiment to measure the density of an irregular object. 6. Describe with the aid of a diagram an experiment to measure the density of a liquid. 7. A stone has a mass of 120 g and a volume of 20 cm3, what is the density of the stone? 8. The density of Iron is 8 g/cm3. Calculate the mass of 6 cm3 of Iron. 9. What is the density of an object which has a mass of 20 kg and whose volume is 4 m3? 10. Draw a diagram of the apparatus used to measure the density of an irregular-shaped object? 11. A student measured the density of a number of substances. The results are shown in the table below. Substance Cork Polystyrene Water Paraffin Oil Rubber Density (g/cm3) 0.3 0.03 1.0 0.7 1.1

Identify two substances that would float in paraffin oil. 12. Why can a solid like ice float on water?
