What happens to the density of most substances as they go from a gas to a liquid to a solid?
Density of gases is much smaller than of liquids (up to 100 times or even more), and almost all of these liquids are in turn less dense than solids (water to ice is one of the exceptions).
How does water's relative densities as a solid and a liquid differ from that of most other substances?
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.
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.

What is the difference between the methods of finding density of liquid than finding the density of solid?
For most substances, the solid phase is more dense than the liquid and gas phases. The liquid phase is less dense than the solid phase but more dense than the gas phase, and the gas phase is less dense than either the solid or liquid phases. Water is an exception. Its solid phase (ice) is less dense than the liquid phase.
If the density of a substance is same as the density of the liquid then what happens to the substance?
I assume you mean a solid that has the same density as a liquid that it is submerged in. If they have the same density, then when the solid is in the liquid, there is exactly zero net force acting on it (weight of solid object is perfectly balanced by bouyant force), so the solid object will just "sit there," assuming there are no other outside forces acting on it (ex. currents, etc.). If the…
The volume of the liquid reduces, due to the increase in density. The exception to this rule is water, it is the only liquid that expands as it goes solid. _____________________________________________________________________________________ Actually it doesn't expand when its a solid the molecules get tightly packed together making it hard (ice).
It depends on the density of the solid, liquid, or gas. If the density is lower than water it will float. (Water's density is about 1). Also, if the volume of the solid, liquid, or gas is bigger than the mass then it will also float. It will sink if the solid, liquid, or gas's density is higher than water's density. :)
For all substances, except water, the solid phase is more dense than the liquid phase. So if you had equal volumes of the solid phase and liquid phase, the solid phase would have more mass. For example, the density of solid iron is 7.874g/cm3, and the density of liquid iron is 6.98g/cm3. NOTE: The 3 after cm is supposed to be a superscript, so that cm3 is supposed to be cubic centimeters, however, currently the…
You can dip the irregular solid in a water or other suitable liquid. This is how, you can measure the volume of the solid. The mass can be measured by weighing scale. Mass/volume = density. It is easy to measure the mass and volume of the liquid. First measure the mass the container. Then add the liquid to it. You will get the mass of the liquid. Then measure the volume of the liquid. Use…
