A Body Weight 7.55kg in air 5.17kg in water and 6.35kg in a certain liquid. Find the Density of the body and that of the liquid if Density of water is 1000 kg/m^3
Density is defined as the amount of mass per unit of volume of a substance. In other words, it is a measure of how tightly packed the particles of a substance are.
The density of a body can be calculated by dividing its mass by its volume. The equation for density is D=m/v, where D is density, m is mass, and v is volume. The resulting unit for density is typically grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3) for solids and liquids, and grams per liter (g/L) for gases.
To find the density of a body, you will need a scale to measure its mass and a ruler to measure its dimensions and calculate its volume. You may also need a graduated cylinder or other container to measure the volume of irregularly shaped objects.
Knowing the density of a body can provide valuable information about its composition and properties. It can help identify substances and distinguish between different materials. Density also plays a crucial role in various scientific fields, such as chemistry, physics, and engineering.
The density of a body determines its buoyancy, or its ability to float or sink in a liquid. A body with a higher density than the liquid it is placed in will sink, while a body with a lower density will float. This is due to the principle of buoyancy, which states that an object will float if it displaces an amount of liquid equal to its own weight.
