Density means how close the particles are. You can determine that by doing an experiment. Try it!

What has a larger mass silver or gold?

gold is larger because of its density

How does an objects volume affect buoyancy?

If the mass stays the same, then when an object gets larger, its density decreases. The larger density=the more bouyancy

If two objects have the same volume but different mass which has a greater density?

The one with the larger mass will have the larger density which means it is more dense.

What is dik-dik's larger relative?

What is the ratio between eye size and head size?

Larger animals have smaller eyes relative to their heads. Likewise, smaller animals have larger eyes relative to their heads.

What do density of elements do as you move down?

get larger

Which has a larger density sand or lead?


What happens to the density of a material if the volume is decreased?

The density becomes larger because the Mass (in the equation D= M/V) is being divided by a smaller number, which causes the Density to turn out larger.The density of a substance is not affected by a change in volume.

Does Norway or Italy have larger population density?


Does urban or rural have a larger population density?


Will density increase or decrease if large object splashed out water?

density will decreas.becuse is greater than larger

Why do larger animals have thicker legs relative to their body size?

Larger animals have thicker legs relative to their body size because the ability of bone to support weight is not directly proportional to body mass.

Is larger volume less density?

For the same mass, yes.

If mass increases volume stays the same then density?

If the mass increases the volume will acctually be 10% larger then the density and mass. ( mass + density and then 10% of that is the volume.

When density decrease it gets smaller or larger?

Density is mass divided by volume. Assuming the mass doesn't change, if the density decreases, then the volume must increase.

What happens when the larger ball collides with smaller ball?

Depends on their relative masses.

Which occupies a larger volume100g lead density 11.34gml or 100g water density 0.995gml?

water will occupy more volume

Why a peel orange cant float?

Larger density than water.

What happens to density of air when heated?

Density will decrease. When a quantity of air is heated, it expands giving it a larger volume. It will still have the same mass, so the density will be lower.

How does the density of a material change when the material expands?

Look at the definition of density, as mass / volume. If the volume increases, you are dividing by a larger number, so the density gets smaller.

Why density of ice is less than water density?

Water has an unusual property that it expands as it freezes. This is due to the crystalline formation in conjunction with its hydrogen bonding. Since it expands, volume is larger. Density = mass / volume. Dividing by a larger number gives a smaller answer for the density. Water is most dense at 4 degrees Celsius.

How could an electron configuration be used to predict relative atomic size?

the larger the highest energy level number, the larger the atomic radius

Why does England have a bigger density than Scotland?

A lot of Scotland is rural and mountainous, so there are large areas where is a low density of population. England is larger and has a much larger population, with more areas that are easily habitable.

Why does the United Kingdom have a larger population density than Russia?

Simple - Russia has more land in relation to the UK. Russia's population is spread over a larger area - therefore their population density is much less.

Why is density used to identify substances instead of mass or volume?

Mass and volume are extensive properties, which are dependent upon the size of the sample. A larger sample will have a greater mass and volume than a smaller sample. Density is an intensive property, which does not depend on the size of the sample. Density is a ratio of mass to volume, which does not vary with the size of the sample. The density of a larger sample will be the same as the density of a smaller sample.
