|density||a measure of how tightly packed particles are in an object|
|mass||a measure of the amount of matter in an object|
|volume||a measure of the amount of space an object takes up|
Mass divided by volume
Mass # always goes into the calculator first even if it’s smaller
EX: If mass is 5.0 g and volume is 20.0 cm3 then d = 0.25 g/cm3
An object will float in a liquid if its density is less than (or equal to) the liquid's density. If the object has a greater density, then it will sink.Auto:
Water has a density of 1.00 g/mL. To determine how high or how low an object will float in water, simply multiply the object's density by 100. That will tell you what percent of the object is in the water. The rest will be above the water line. Any percent greater than 100, then the object will sink to the bottom.
