Homework Help: General Chemistry

  1. May 26, 2005 #1
    I have another chem question, this time about water displacement. All i need is how to start it....the steps...not the ACTUAL WORK FOR THE PROBLEM

    The density of Solid A is 2.70 g/cm3 and that of Solid B is 1.79 g/cm3. A 6.86-g sample of Solid A is transferred to a graduated cylinder containing 5.00 mL of water and a 7.11-g sample of Solid B is transferred to a graduated cylinder, also containing 5.00 mL of water. Which solid sample displaces the larger volume of water? By how many mililiters?

    I have like 12 of these types of problems....and dont even know how to start.
