The number of protons in an atom

Question 1: What is mass?

The pull of gravity on an object

__Mass__ is a measurement that tells us how much matter is in an object or substance. Some units of mass include grams (g), kilograms (kg), and metric tons (t).

Example: The pencil has a mass of 6 grams.

__Volume__ refers to how much space an object or substance takes up. Some units of volume include milliliters (ml), liters (L), and cubic centimeters (cm³).

Example: The eraser has a volume of 4 cubic centimeters.

Note: 1 milliliter (ml) is the same volume as 1 cubic centimeter (cm^{3}).

__Density__ refers to the amount of matter in a given amount of space. To find the density of a substance, divide its mass by its volume. Some units of density include grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm^{3}), grams per milliliter (g/ml), kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m^{3}), and kilograms per liter (kg/L).

Example: The rock is much more dense than the marshmallow. The density of the rock is 2.8 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm^{3}). The density of the marshmallow is 0.5 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm^{3}).

Remember:

Objects or substances sink in substances they are MORE dense than.

Objects or substances float in substances they are LESS dense than.

Remember:

Try again!

Volume of grape = (volume of water + grape) - (volume of water without grape)

Try again!

Volume of grape = (volume of water + grape) - (volume of water without grape)

Try again!

Volume of grape = (volume of water + grape) - (volume of water without grape)

**That's right!**

The volume of the grape is 6 ml.

Remember:

The density of the grape can be found by dividing the mass of the grape by its volume.

The mass of the grape is provided on the page and you have already concluded that the volume of the grape is 6 ml.

Divide the mass by 6 ml and you will have the value for the density in the units of grams/milliliter! This is the number you will enter.

You can do this!

Question 1: Which of these balls is the LEAST dense?

Mass = 620 grams

3

To find the density of each ball, divide its mass by its volume.

To determine whether an object will sink or float in water, compare its density to the density of water (1.00 grams/cubic cm). If an object has a density greater than 1.00 grams/cubic cm, it will sink in water. If it has a density that is less than 1.00 grams/cubic cm, it will float.

Something to ponder....what will an object that has the SAME density as water do???
