## Homework Statement

The density of an object is given by its mass divided by its volume: ##p=\frac{m}{V}##

Use a calculator to plot the volume as a function of density (##V=\frac{m}{p}##), assuming a mass of 8kg (m=8).

In the follow-up question (part b): Evaluate ##\lim_{p \rightarrow 0} {V\left(p\right)}##

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I just plain don't understand what this is asking me at all.

I started off by stating that volume as a function of density ⇒ V(p)

Then I made a table. The left column as density, and the right column as ##V(p)=\frac{8}{p}##

Then I got lost in thinking what values I should plug in.

As a thought process, I noted that as the density increases, the volume decreases and vice versa.

I'm not sure if I'm understanding what the question is asking me.
