A wooden block has a mass of 1000 kg and a volume of 2 cubic meters what is the block's density?
The block has a density of 500 kg/m3
How you would use a triple beam balance and a ruler to find the density of the solid a wooden block?
Density (kg/m3) = mass (kg)/Volume (m3) So to find the density of the wooden block, the triple beam balanced is used to calculate the mass and the metre rule is used to measure the height, length and width of the wooden block. Then the volume is calculated by multiplying the thee distances obtained from the ruler. Finally the density is calculated using the equation: Density (kg/m3) = mass (kg)/Volume (m3)
Density means mass per unit volume. Hence, mass of a body divided by it's volume will give us it's density. Here mass = 4g, volume= 5cm3 So, density = mass/volume =4g/5cm3 =0.8g/cm3 This is the average density of the wooden block. The density of block whole throughout it's body may not always be equal to this value. Some portions of block can be more dense and some less dense. But the average density of any…
