Measurements: Density DENSITY is the amount of of some material. ____ contained in a given The following boxes are the SAME VOLUME. Assume all the balls have Equal mass. Which box is denser? MATHMATICAL STATEMENTS OF DENSITY Density is the ratio of an object’s __________________ to its ________________. DENSITY = ________________ or D= _____________ The density of The density of is stated in terms of is stated in terms of . . To determine the DENSITY of a material, measure its MASS on a and determine its VOLUME. Then the MASS by the VOLUME. EXAMPLES 1. Calculating density with known mass and volume: a. determine the density of a material that has a mass of 36g and volume of 2.5 cm3. 2. Calculating volume with known mass and density: a. find the volume of 50g of olive oil if the density of olive oil is 0.80g/mL.
