The density of a material is defined as its mass per unit volume.

The density of liquid water is normally given as 1000 kg/m3 or 1 g/cm3 as a very accurate estimate, but often ranges slightly below this value, depending on temperature.

Unlike other agents that tend to freezing point, water tends to expand as at freezes; it therefore becomes less dense. Thus, the density of solid water is normally given as just over 91% of this; a common given value is 9.17 g/cm, or 9170 kg/m3.

Comparing the density of a liquid to the density of water is?

This is the determination of the specific density (the ratio liquid density/water density).


If an object sinks in water what is its density?

The object can have any density that is higher than the density of water. (Density of water: 1g/mL)


How do you find out if things float on water using just its density?

Compare the thing's density with the density of water. If the thing's density is less than the density of water it will float, if greater than water it will not.


How does the density of something that sinks compare to the density of water?

If it sinks its density is greater than the density of water.

What density is required to have the ability to float in water?

density of water=1.00 If an object (solid) has a density lower than the density of water, it will float. If it has a density higher, it will float.


When you compare the density of water or air with another object how can you tell which has the lower or higher density?

-- If the object floats in water, then its density is less than the density of water. -- If the object sinks in water, then its density is more than the density of water. -- If the object floats in air, then its density is less than the density of air. -- If the object sinks in air, then its density is less than the density of air.

If the relative density of gold is 19.3 what would be its density?

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


Why does ice have a higher density than water?

Ice doesn't have a higher density than water, that is why it floats on top of water.


What is the density of 1000g of water?

The density of something does not depend on the amount of the substance you have, the density of 1 gram of water is the same as the density of 100000000 grams of water. The density of pure water at standard temperature and pressure is 1.


Why density of ice is greater than water?

The density of ice is NOT greater than the density of water. When water freezes it expands, therefore the density decreases. This is easily observable because ice floats on water, therefore density of ice is less than the density of liquid water.
