Density- Cornell notes page 125

Density Physical property of matter amount of matter in a given amount of space. (amount of matter is called “mass,” and amount of space an object takes up is called “volume”) Density= Mass/Volume http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =FSupQZQqaPk

Density How do we find mass? How do we find volume?

Density How do we find mass? – triple beam balance, scale How do we find volume? – multiply length, width, and height – use displacement method 1 mL= 1 cm 3 (centimeter cubed/cubic centimeter= cc )

Density Water has a given density of 1g/mL Things that are less dense will float on water. Things that are more dense will sink.

Back to the Egg… 1. Did the egg change? 2. In Cup #1 is the egg more dense or less dense than the liquid? 3. In Cup #2 is the egg more dense or less dense than the liquid? 4. Is the liquid in Cup #1 more dense or less dense than Cup #2?
