Density plays an important role in our understanding of the physical properties of Earth materials. The equation
for density is similar to that for velocity and, as such, it can be manipulated so that you can solve for any of the
variables involved. The next few problems utilize the equation for density:
a) Rearrange the density to create an equation for mass.
b) Rearrange the density equation to create an equation for volume.
Use the equations that you manipulated above to solve the following problems:
c)
The continental crust of the earth has a density of about 2.75 g/cm3. What volume would 1000 g (1 kg) of
continental crust occupy?
d)
The outer core of the earth has a density of about 10.5 g/cm3. What volume would 1000 g (1 kg) of the outer core
occupy?
