100What is nice belt!
What did the zero say to the eight?

200What is sink.
Magnesium has a density of 1.7 g/cm3. If a piece of magnesium was placed in milk (with a density of 1.027 g/cm3) would it sink of float?

200What is kg/m3
If the mass of a cube is found in kilograms and the lengths are measured in meters, what would its density label be?

200What is 15 g/cm3
A cube has a length of 2 centimeters. If the cube has a mass of 120 grams, what is the density?

200What is measure the volume using the water displacement can and measure its mass using a balance.
While completing the salt lab, what did you have to do in order to calculate the density of the golf ball?

200What is the density is also reduced
If the mass of a block is decreased, what is the affect on the density?

300What is vegetable oil, water, dish soap, honey
Dawn Dish soap (d=1.06 g/mL), Honey (d=1.42 g/mL), Water and Vegetable oil (d=0.92) are combined in a graduated cylinder. If the liquids are allowed to settle, in what order would they appear starting from the top?

300What is g/cm3, g/m3, g/mL, g/L, etc...
What are three labels that could signify density?

300What is 238 cm3.
What volume of silver metal will weigh exactly 2500.0 g? The density of silver is 10.5 g/cm3.

300What is 0.50 kg/L or 0.50 g/mL
If an object is placed in water and it floats with about half of it under water, what is the density of the object?

300What is block 2
There are two blocks on a desk. If the blocks have the same mass, but block 1 has a larger volume than block 2, which block has the greater density?

400What is increase the mass and decrease the volume.
An empty cube is placed into water and it floats. What are two things you could change in order to make the cube sink?

400What is g/cm3
If the density of an object is measured in g/mL, what is another label that would signify the same amount?

400What is 3.36 g/cm3
Calculate the density of the brass block that has the volume of 36 cm3 and the mass of 121 g.

400What is a scale and ruler or meter stick
What equipment would you need to calculate the density of the red book (dictionary)?

400What is the mass stays the same, the volume decreases, and the density increases
If a styrofoam cup is stepped on, how do its mass, volume, and density change?

500What is anything below 1.027, above 1.027, and right at 1.027.
The density of sea water is 1.027 g/mL. What are possible densities of objects that would float, sink, and stay suspended in the sea water?

500What is liters and milliliters already measure volume, they don't need to be cubed
Why is there no such volume label as liters cubed or milliliters cubed?

500What is the graduated cylinder filled with water.
You have two identical graduated cylinders filled with 100 mL of liquid. One has water in it and the other is filled with gasoline. If gasoline has a density of 0.70 g/mL, which graduated cylinder would weigh more?

500What is placed the blocks into the tank of water and see how much the volume increased by.
Explain how you found the volume of the blocks when doing the density simulation on the computers.

500What is the second block. A smaller volume and larger mass will equate to a larger density
The volume of one block of wood is greater than that of a second block of wood, but the mass of the second is greater. Which has the greater density and why?
