**blaise**, Thursday, March 25, 2010 at 12:00amdensity = mass divided by volume. volume is the 10 liters and mass is the 8.20 kg.

you take it on from there.

AND the smaller the density, the more it will float, the larger the density, the more it will sink. so if the density of the crude oil is smaller than the water, it will float. the density of water is 1, now find the density of crude oil with the equation i have just given you.
