The density of diamond is 3.51 g/cm3 and the density of lead is 11.3 g/cm3. If equal masses of diamond and lead are transferred to equal volumes of water in separate graduated cylinders, which graduated cylinder would have the greatest volume change?

  • general chemistry 1 - ,

    Pick a mass, any mass you choose. Then
    mass = volume x density and rearrange to
    volume = mass/density
    volume = substitute mass and density and see which has the larger volume.

  • general chemistry 1 - ,

    the graduated cylinder with the diamond would have the highest volume reading because its low density would have to account for greater volume
