Density Relating mass and volume Notes, p. 118 Which is heavier: 1 pound of lead or 1 pound of feathers? SAME: Both weigh 1 lb.

Which has a greater volume: 1 pound of lead or 1 pound of feathers? FEATHERS! Why do the same masses of lead and feathers have such different volumes?

ANSWER: LEAD AND FEATHERS HAVE DIFFERENT DENSITIES. THE DENSITY OF LEAD (11.3 g/ cm3) IS MUCH GREATER DENSITY THAN THE DENSITY OF FEATHERS ( 0.025 g/cm3) Why are the ping pong ball, the soda cap, the beads, the cherry tomato, the di, popcorn kernal and the bolt all in different locations? What is the formula for density?

Volume Units: mass volume d = m/v g mL or cm3

Determining Density in the Lab using the water displacement method Explain how the density of an object could be using the following equipment: p. 125, HW 4-5, #1) Determine the density of Sponge Bob Square Pants to the correct of SF using the volume displacement method Step #1: Measure the mass to the correct number of SF

ANS: 7.50 g (record screen exactly) 7.50 g Determining the density of Sponge Bob Square Pants to the correct of SF using the volume displacement method Step #2: Measure the initial and final volume to the correct SF. Important assumption: Assume Sponge Bob does not act like

a normal sponge (justified by the fact he wears pants and talks) and does not actually absorb water. Record initial and Final Volumes and calculate V (Final initial) to the correct number of SF Volume Final: 52.0 mL - Volume Initial: 50.0 mL Volume Final: 2.0 mL

Determining the density of Sponge Bob Square Pants to the correct of SF using the volume displacement method Step #3: Plug in mass and volume into density equation d = m/v = 7.50 g/ 2.0 mL = 3.75 3.8 g/mL (2 SF) Note that unlike a typical sponge that floats, Sponge Bob sinks since has density > 1 g/mL (density of water)

HIGHER DENSITY Homework Problem #4: Eureka! Density of Gold = 19.3 g/mL Density of Silver = 10.5 g/mL Calculate the volume occupied by 500. g of each metal: d = m/v dv = m v = m/d Gold: v = 500. g / 19.3 g/mL = 25.9 mL

Silver: v = 500. g / 10.5 g/mL = 47.6 mL Homework Problem #4: Archimedes and the gold crown Archimedes placed an equal mass of pure gold in water and compared the water displaced by the crown. Since the crown displaced more water, it was not pure gold.

Archimedes link HW 6-1, #5 Explain the following observation: Liquid water has a density of 1.0 g/ mL while solid water (ice) has a density of 0.91 g/mL Link to ice bomb 5a) Water molecules are packed more closely together in liquid than in ice.

In ice molecules pack in 6 membered rings leaving a hole in the center. 5b) No 5c) Volume expands when water freezes could burst bottle Applications of Density: Sink vs. Float and identifying a substance Different materials displace different volumes

6a)Regular soda has a density greater than 1 (sinks); diet soda density is less than 1 (floats) Sink or Float: Which can has a density less than 1 g/mL and which can has density greater

than 1 g/mL? Diet(sugar free) soda and soda in water 4b) Which has a higher concentration of sweet molecules, regular or diet soda? Diet

Regular Artificial sweetners produce the same sweet taste at a much lower concentration than sugar HW 6-1 #7 Densities of common objects which phases tends to have the lowest densities and which phase tends to have the highest densities? Propose an atomic level observation to account for the data.

What do you notice about the relationship between density and volume of different metals with the same mass? Solids have the greatest number of atoms/molecules per volume space; gases have the fewest number of atoms per space. Less dense materials require a larger volume for the same mass of material.
