1
Density How compact is the material?

2
How close the atoms or molecules are to each other More than“heaviness”- density includes how much space an object takes up! All substances have density including liquids, solids, and gases Density is the measure of the “compactness” of a material

3
“Compactness”

4
Density Density describes how much mass is in a given volume of a material.

5
Mass is the amount of matter in an object (usually measured in grams) Volume is the amount of space an object takes up (usually measured in ml or cm 3 )

6
Density Equation D = m v

7
Given: mass = 1500 g; volume = 1700 mL Equation: D = m/v =.88 g/mL Solve: 1,500 g ÷ 1,700 mL = g/mL A solid wax candle has a volume of 1,700 mL. The candle has a mass of 1.5 kg (1,500 g). What is the density of the candle? Word problems

8
What do you think? If the volume stays the same and the mass increases... the density will If the mass stays the same and the volume increases... The density will

9
The units used for density depend on whether the substance is solid or liquid. ◦For liquids use units of grams per milliliter (g/mL) ◦For solids use density in units of g/cm 3 or kg/m 3. Units for density

11
Density of common materials Liquids tend to be less dense than solids of the same material. ◦Ex. solder

12
Water is an exception to this rule. The density of solid water (ice) is less than the density of liquid water. Density of common materials
