# How does the density of one object compare to half of the same object?

It's identical.

(assuming that the object is homogeneous)

## Related Questions   Its the same, even though the mass is smaller, so is the volume, there for the mass to volume ratio stays the same when you cut it in half. The density stays the same. The reason why is because the density of something is mass divided by volume, so if you cut the object in half, it will not change at all. :) ((and yes the other answer was gibberish lol.)) Consider what density is. Does it change when you cut the object in half? The object in question will weigh half as much as long as density is uniform. (that is the only hint you should need, if you don't understand go back and do your own homework) If you can't answer this question then some reading wouldn't hurt you. It will only make you less dense! An object with lower density than the liquid will float, one with more density will sink. Anything with the same density will stay at the depth where it is placed. If it is placed half submerged it would sink until submerged. Nothing. Density depends only on the substance in the sample, and not on the size of the sample. The density of a sliver of plate steel resting on the tip of your finger is the same as the density of the battleship that's built from plate steel. ANSWER:No. The mass will be halved but the density will remain the same. ___________________________________________________________The density will remain the same since the formula for density of an object is mass/volume. When you split and object, the mass is divided by 2, and the volume is divided by 2 (or whatever fraction you want to cut your item). If you would, compare mass/volume=mass divided by 2/volume divided by 2. Yes, it would have the same density. The volume of an object does not change no matter where it is. So on the moon the object would have the same mass and volume as it would on earth; therefore that object would have the same density. Density equals mass divided by volume.  The density of an object doesn't change if you don't change the object. if you compress it or expand it, it will always have the same density. Because the density of an object does not depend on the amount in an object but the hardness or softness of that object for the same volume, the higher the object density the higher is its mass.  object B has greater density recall the formula for density is = mass/volume since volume is the same, a greater mass will give a greater density Different objects have the same density if they're made of the same substance.Density is a property of the substance, not the object.  no because density is how dense it is (how low the object or thing is) but width is how thick or thin the object is. Density of the substance will always stay the same. Density of the object will also stay the same if solid, no matter the size, but not if it is carved out. That is why a steel boat can float If the objects have the same density, yes. If the object do not have the same density, then no. Density = mass / volume.  Density has nothing to do with size. A given material will have the same density regardless of its size. A small object of a material with a high density can weigh as much as or more than a large object of a material with a low density.  No. If an object is homogeneous, then you can cut it up into a bazillion smaller pieces, and every piece has the same density as the original object had. if this is the same question i had then the answer is -the blue object has a density less than 1g/cm^3
