1.What is density?

  1. What kind of property is density?
  1. List the following from lowest to highest density: iron, gold, steel, water, air, silver, and aluminum.
  1. What measurements must be made before you can calculate the density of a material?
  1. What are the units of density for a liquid?
  1. What is specific gravity?
  1. What determines the height at which a hydrometer floats in a liquid?
  1. A hydrometer is a device that can be used to measure the specific gravity of a ___________.
  1. What is displacement?
  1. What is buoyancy?
  1. If a buoyant force of 6 N acts on a block placed in water, what is the weight of the water that the block displaces?
  1. When will an object float in water?
  1. A metal block is 20 cm long, 10cm high, and 5 cm wide.  If submerged in water, how much water will the block displace?  If the density of water is 1g/cm3 what will be the buoyant force on the block?
  1. Density is measured in
  1. Archimedes discovered that objects weigh less when they
  1. If the buoyant force on an object is equal to the object’s weight, then the object will
  1. If a rock displaces 50 ml, the volume of the rockis
