Matter- Any substance that has mass and
volume.
Mass- The amount of matter(atoms) in an
object.
Weight- Measures the force of gravity
Volume – The space an object occupies.
Density- Is the ratio of mass per unit of volume.
Compares the amount of matter to the amount of
space that matter occupies.
Density measures how much stuff is packed into a
certain amount space.
Density =How much stuff
Density = Mass / Volume
/ packed into a certain amount of space

The amount of matter in the object does not change*
The force of gravity can change.
Therefore mass will not change but weight can
change
Is air matter? Does it have density?

How can you determine the density of an object by how it floats?
Water (density 1.0g/ml) ,
Salt water (density 1.7g/ml)
&amp; a metal marble (density 1.3g/ml)
were all placed into the same graduated
cylinder.
Draw a diagram showing how they
would layer.

Use the data to construct a graph on the grid provided. (5pts)
Create an appropriate label and scale for the “Y” axis.
Plot a line graph for object A and label the line “Object A.”
Plot a Line graph for object B and label the line “Object B.”

What happens to the density of an object when
you change the size of the object?
Does a pond freeze from the top of the water to the bottom
or from the bottom of the water to the top? Provide a

What is Buoyancy?
Buoyancy: The Force of a fluid pushing up on an object.
Fluid: Any liquid or gas.
•
The type of fluid determines the amount of Buoyancy.
•
Increasing the surface area of an object can increase
Buoyancy.
Gravity: Force that pulls “down”. (Earth Gravity- Force that
pulls down to the center of the earth.)
When there is a balanced force between gravity and buoyancy
an object is said to be neutral buoyant.
