True or False (14 points)
If the statement is correct, write “correct.” If it is not correct, change the underlined word
or words to make the statement correct.
1. We live on the mantle.
2. The Earth (including air & water) is made up of two layers.
3. The density of the atmosphere is 3.3-5.7 g/mL.
4. Density is mass divided by volume
5. Density effects how sediments cause layers.
6. The thinnest layer of the earth is the crust.
7. If something is denser than water, it will sink in water.
8. The layer of the earth that extends from the bottom of the crust to the core is the water.
9. As you travel from the crust to the core of the earth the density stays the same.

run-off? (5 points)
5. The outer core of the earth is very hot and liquid. Why is the outer core liquid even
though it is near the densest layer? (5 points)
6. A large block of wood is placed in water with a small steel block. Why does the wood
float even though it is larger than the small steel block which sinks? (5 points)

8. Joe Student went skiing at a Northern Utah Ski Resort in the mountains. The day was
warm, clear and the sky was blue. His mom went shopping in Salt Lake City, where it
was cold and there was an inversion of thick dirty air. Use density and temperature to
describe how this happens. (8 points)
