Describe why objects float or sink in water using the terms density, mass and volume. 2. Will this object float or sink in water, why? 3. An unknown piece of wood has a mass of 50 g and a volume of 417 cm3. Show your work using the three-step method. What type of wood do you have? Beech 0.7 - 0.9 g/cm3 Balsa 0.11 - 0.14 g/cm3 Bamboo 0.3 - 0.4 g/cm3 4. You have a block of each type of wood. Draw what the particles of each type of wood look like to show their relative densities. Label each block with the name of the wood and whether it is “densest” or “least dense”.
