Archimedes’ method Object Mass (g) Mass of Displaced Water (g) Volume of Displaced Water (mL) Density (g/mL) Metal Bolt 42.5 25 25 25 Magnet 16.2 3.5 3.5 3.5 Questions: An unknown, rectangular substance measures 3.6 cm high, 4.21 cm long, and 1.17 cm wide. If the mass is 21.3 g, what is this substance’s density (in grams per milliliter)? 1.2 g/ml A sample of gold (Au) has a mass of 26.15 g. Given that the theoretical density is 19.30 g/mL, what is the volume of the gold sample? 1.35 mL What would happen if you dropped the object into the beaker while using the Archimedes’ Principle method instead of submerging the object? The measurements would be the same. compare to the density measurement using the calculated volume? Which method might be more accurate? Why? I think Archimedes’ Principle if done properly can be done more accurately because liquid displaces evenly. You are given a small piece of gold colored material and want to determine if it is actually gold. Using the Archimedes Principle you find that the volume is 0.40 cm3 and the mass is 6.0 g. What conclusions can you reach from your simple density analysis? It isn't gold because gold has a higher density. Exercise 3: Concentration, Solution, and…show more content…

Molarity vs. Density Molarity vs. Density molarity is the concentration of a solution given in gram moles of solute per liter of solution. Density is the degree of compactness of a substance. Questions: How would you prepare 10 mL of a 0.25M HCl solution if 1M HCl was available? How much 1M HCl is needed? How much distilled water is used? Dilute 2.5ml of 1M solution with 7.5ml of dihydrogen monoxide. From the graph of Molarity vs. Density, created in Data Table 10, what was the relationship between the molarity of the sugar solution and the density of the sugar solution? Density and molarity are not dependant on each
