Asked in Density
How does the density of a liquid compare with the density of a solid?
That depends on the liquid and the solid. Liquid mercury has a very high density. Liquid gasoline has a very low density. At the melting point the density of a liquid and a solid are almost the same. ...
What is the relationship between mass volume and density of solids liquids and gasses?
mass is mass for solid, liquid, and gas. density of solid > density of liquid > density of gas volume of solid < volume of liquid < volume of gas There are some exceptions to "density of solid > density of liquid" and "volume of solid < volume of liquid", with some of them being ice / water and rock / magma. ...

What causes object of the same volume to sink rather than float?
A solid object in contact with a liquid in which the solid does not dissolve will sink if the density of the solid is greater than the density of the liquid and will float if the density of the solid is lower than the density of the liquid. ...

How does the density of a body and that of a liquid determine that whether the body will float or sink into that liquid?
If the density of the solid body is greater than the density of the liquid the body will sink. If the density of the liquid is greater than the density of the solid the body will float. If the solid and the liquid have the same density, the solid body can be any where inside the liquid and may move following currents if they exist in the liquid.

Do all solid and liquid have the same density?
The answer is NO?REASON- DENSITY is define as mass over volume, and it tells us the degree of heavy-ness of a solid and a liquid. so it is impossible for all solid and liquid to have the same density. Unless the liquid is made to have the same density with the solid and vice versa. ...
Asked in Chemistry
How can liquid changed from liquid to a solid?
A liquid can be changed into solid through a process of physical change called freezing. Freezing is when particals in a substance are slowed down to the point that they cannot pass over each other, when this happens, the item that the particals make up becomes a solid. ...
Asked in Physics, Chemistry, Science Experiments
What is the difference between the methods of finding density of liquid than finding the density of solid?
A solid has air gaps. Density is mass per volume. Volume of the known mass of solid is determined by displacement of liquid in which the solid is insoluble. In case of liquid, the mass of known volume of liquid is determined. ...
What happens when a substance changes state from a solid or liquid?
This change in the state of matter (liquid to solid) is called freezing. This change in the state of matter (solid to liquid) is called melting. They are physical change, the chemical nature of the molecules is not changed. ...
