# Density

advertisement ```Density- Cornell notes page 125
Density
• Physical property of matter
• amount of matter in a given
amount of space.
• (amount of matter is called
“mass,” and amount of space
an object takes up is called
“volume”)
• Density= Mass/Volume

Density
• How do we find mass?
• How do we find volume?
Density
• How do we find mass?
– triple beam balance, scale
• How do we find volume?
– multiply length, width, and height
– use displacement method
• 1 mL= 1 cm3
(centimeter cubed/cubic
centimeter= cc)
Density
• Water has a given density of
1g/mL
• Things that are less dense
will float on water.
• Things that are more dense
will sink.
Back to the
Egg…
1. Did the egg change?
2. In Cup #1 is the egg more dense or
less dense than the liquid?
3. In Cup #2 is the egg more dense or
less dense than the liquid?
4. Is the liquid in Cup #1 more dense or
less dense than Cup #2?
