Density = Mass divided by Volume So if we take a known volume of gold, and find out its weight, we can determine the density.

To test if something is pure gold, you will need to find out the density. The density of pure gold is 19.3 g/mL. To find the density, u will need to find out the mass and volume of the object then divide the mass by the volume ( m/V ). If your answer is not 19.3 then it is not pure gold.

Bite it...well you could find the density of it by this equation density=mass/volume and compare it to the density of gold on the periodic table

To answer this question, you need to know the density of gold, which is 19.30g/cm3. The formula for density is: Density = mass/volume The given volume of gold is 1cm3. *1cc = 1cm3. Manipulate the density formula to find mass: mass = density x volume = 19.30g/cm3 x 1cm3 = 19.30g of gold

The density of Fools Gold is 5.0

The density of gold is extensive.

Archimedes wieghed the crown's density to find out if it was pure gold.

Archimedes was told by the king to find out if his crown was made of pure gold, calculating the density of the crown, Archimedes found it to be a mix of gold and silver.

you weigh its density and compare it with the density of gold, if both densities are same, then the crown is made of pure gold. if the density of the crown is lower than the density of gold, then the crown is made of materials that are cheaper or have a density that is less than gold, meaning that it is not made of pure gold.

The density of Gold is a physical property of the element and this can not be changed. If you dissolve Gold in bronze then you make a substance called an alloy. The density of the alloy can vary because it is not a pure substance but the density of the gold in it is not changed.

Measure its density. if the density of the small gold spots is lower or higher than 19.3g/cm3, then they are not gold. if the density is exactly 19.3g/cm3, then they are gold

If the gold is of the same purity the density will be the same.

Measure the gold, take the volume of the gold, then divide mass over volume to give you the density of gold if it was the same as gold density then it is right other wise that ring is doggy

No, gold can't float on water because the density of gold is greater than the density of water.

The formula to find density is:density = mass/volumeTo find mass when density and volume are known:mass = density x volumeExample: What is the mass of a 10.0cm3 sample of gold with a density of 19.30g/cm3?Known:volume = 10.0cm3density = 19.30g/cm3Equation:mass = 19.30g/cm3 x 10.0cm3 = 193g

5.00 cm is a length measurement, not a mass measurement. You need to know the mass and volume of an object to find density. Density = mass/volume.

The density of gold is about 19 g/cm3, or 19,000 kg/m3.

The density of gold is 19.3. At a temperature of 20 centigrade above zero.

The density of solid gold is physical property

relative density is related to the density of water. i.e. a relative density of 19.3 means that it has a density 19.3 times the density of water. The density of water is 1g/ml therefore the density of gold is 19.3g/ml

Gold has the highest density of the metals listed.

The density of gold is 19.3g per cm3. The density of water is 1g per cm3. This doesn't change whether you have a tiny speck of gold or a giant lump the size of an iceberg. If a small gold ring has a density of only 8 times the density of water, then I'm sorry but you've been ripped off. It's not real gold, it is in fact iron.

Fool's gold is 5.0 regular gold is 50.0

The density of gold is rho = 19,320 kg/m³ and for water is rho = 1,000 kg/m³. The density of gold is rho = 19.320 g/cm³ and for water is rho = 1 g/cm³.
