a 10liter sample of one type of crude oil has a mass of 8.20kg. What i the density?
If this oil spilled on the ocean's surface, would it sink or float? explain answer in terms of density.

density = 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.
