The only way that the mass can change is if matter is added or taken away. The volume of a liquid can increase if heated, such as the liquid inside of a thermometer. The thermometer is sealed and no liquid gets in or out, so the mass of the liquid is unchanged. But when the temperature goes up, the liquid expands and is forced to go up the thermometer.

What happens to the mass and volume of a matter during a phase change?

mass stays the same, however volume changes. If it is going from solid to liquid or liquid to gas, the volume increases. If it is going the opposite direction, then volume decreases. An exception is water, which increases in volume as it goes from liquid to solid.

What changes when mass and volume change?

If mass or volume is changed, the density (mass per volume) will also change.

When you heat a cool substance does the mass or volume change?

No, the mass and volume stay the same but the shape changes. Changes in state never change it's mass but if it changes to gas, the volume is unmeasurable.

How does the change in the volume affect the density of solids liquids and gases?

Because when the volume of an object,liquid,or gas Exspand then the density changes Mass/Volume= Density

Can volume of gas change at constant temperature and pressure conditions?

That change is known to be a change of state. Gas becomes liquid. If gas is taken out we can change the volume at constant temperature and pressure conditions. That is mass changes hence volume changes keeping the density constant.

What happens to the mass of ml of liquid water wen it vaporizes to form about L of water?

The mass doesn't change in this case. Only the volume changes.

What is the relationship between the volume of a liquid and its mass?

The mass of a liquid and the volume of it are not related, they have no bearing on one another. The mass and volume can change independently, in theory. They are related by the equation to calculate density. Density=Mass/Volume

When you cool a liquid will it become lighter?

Apart from insignificant effects due to the Special Theory of Relativity (less energy implies less mass), there will be no change in the mass, and therefore no change in the weight. The density of a liquid, however, will change, since the volume changes.

Does changing the volume of water change the density?

Density = mass / volume. So if the volume changes, the density will obviously also change.

Explain what will happen to the mass volume and density of a liquid as the temperature increases?

Mass -- won't change Volume -- will increase (for most liquids, over most temperature changes) Density -- will decrease (for most liquids, over most temperature changes).

Does volume change when the phase of an object changes?

Yes under constant pressure, with a given mass, volume changes during the change of state. When steam condenses, its volume is reduced. But, when water changes into ice, its volume becomes more. This is known to be anomalous expansion of water. Where as in other cases, when the liquid form gets changed into solid form, the volume is reduced.

What changes when you change the mass of a moving object?

Quantities which depend on the mass of an object are its momentum, and kinetic energy.Both change if the mass changes. In addition, if the object's volume doesn't change,then its density also changes.

What doesn't change with changes in gravity?

Mass, volume, and density.

Does a fluid's density change when it is compressed and attenuated?

Yes it does change because its mass does not change but its volume does. When it is compressed the density will increase because its volume does. When it is attenuated will decrease because the volume does. Density is mass over volume. Remember: it only works because its mass stays the same and the volume changes.

Can you have the same mass but different volume?

Yes. In terms of chemistry, when a liquid becomes a gas the volume of the gas is equal to the container volume while the mass of the gas does not change. Mass will never change unless more moles are added.

How are liquid mass and liquid volume different?

Mass = Volume x Density

When ice melts does its mass change?

Mass is conserved. Volume changes slightly, so density changes as well, but mass remains the same.

Why does density increase when the mass changes and volume remains constant?

Recall the formula for density. D = M/V. As V the volume is said to be constant then density D is directly proportional to the mass. Hence as there is a change in mass then density also changes accordingly

Does mass change when the phase of an object changes?

A phase change does not result in a mass change. The density of a substance may change, but the mass will not. If a kilogram of water changes phase into ice, there will be a kilogram of ice. The volume of the ice will be greater than the volume of the water, but one kilogram is one kilogram.

What happens when a liquid changes to a gas?

When a liquid changes to a gas, the space between its molecules increases substantially, so the same amount of mass occupies a much larger volume.

When a substance changes from a solid to a liquid its density normally decreases. What is happening to the substance's mass and volume to cause this decrease in density?

The mass remain constant, the volume increase.

Is mass and volume conserved in a chemical change?

No. Mass must be conserved in a chemical changes according to the law of conservation of mass, which holds that the mass of the reactants and the mass of the products of a chemical reaction must be equal. However, there is no similar law about conserving volume and volume can change dramatically if a gas is produced.

Does the mass of a substance change after a chemical reaction changes the substance from a liquid to a solid?

No. According the the law of conservation of Mass, it would be physically impossible for the mass of the substance to change. However, it is possible for the volume (amount of space taken up by the substance) to change, as well as it's weight (if gasses are released or molecules in the air are involved).

Does the volume and mass ever change?

It depends on what the question is about? For instance, an ingot of lead is heavy and, unless melted into a liquid state, is unlikely to change in volume or mass. More specific information is needed.

Why does the volume of the water vapor increase and the mass remain constant When 1 gram of water is evaporated?

Mass is mass. It is constant. Changing water from liquid to gas does not change the mass, it only changes the density, which is mass per volume. Look at it another way - in gaseous form, the same mass of water has the same number of molecules of water - but those molecules are simply further apart.
