### How can we calculate the density of a irregular solid or a liquid?

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…

### Does the Volume of Liquid stay the same?

No. Both the volume of a liquid and the mass of that liquid can change by increasing or decreasing the amount of molecules in said container. The density, which is mass divided by volume, stays the same. If you have 20mL of water (which is a measure volume), that means you have 20g of water (which is a measure of mass). Therefore, the density of water is 1g/mL (which is a measure of density). 20mL…

### What do you use to measure the mass of a liquid?

A set of scales! Mass is measured in kg and we measure it in science using a top-hand balance. Obviously using a liquid you will have to place a vessel on top, tare the balance and then pour in your liquid to measure it. If the liquid you are measuring is water then things are far easier. 1ml of water = 1g of water. Volume of liquids are measured in ml and mass in kg…

### What do they mean by water has a high heat of vaporization?

The heat (enthalpy) of vaporization for water is defined as the heat per unit mass required to convert liquid water at its boiling point to gaseous water at the same temperature. For any given mass unit, the value for water is higher than that for almost any other liquid, because of the strong hydrogen bonding of water in liquid.

### A can of Diet Coke floats and a can of reg coke sinks in water what is the difference between them the volumeor the mass or the density or weight?

An object will float in a liquid if its density is less than the density of the liquid. The density is the mass divide by the volume. An object will float in a liquid if its density is less than the density of the liquid. The density is the mass divide by the volume. An object will float in a liquid if its density is less than the density of the liquid. The density is…

### Why can objects float?

Objects float if they displace more than their own mass. This means that if when they are put into a liquid the mass (weight) of the volume of the liquid that "has to get out of the way" is greater than the mass of the object, it will float. An empty glass bottle floats in water because the bottle is filled with air, yet the bottle's shape keeps water out and the mass of the…

### Beaker X contains 50cm3 of marbles while Beaker Y contains 100cm3 of water. When all the water in Beaker Y is poured into Beaker X what is the volume of the water in Beaker X?

The volume of the water in Beaker X will be 100cm3, as you are not adding any more water to the equation (50X+100Y is not 150Y or X, but 50X+100Y) The total volume of matter in Beaker X will be 150cm3, and if the beaker is labelled, the volume measure will indicate 150cm3 due to the displacement of water. But as the answer to your question, the volume of water in Beaker X must be…
