A student wanted to determine the density of an irregularly shaped piece of sodium metal. The student is warned not to use water displacement to find the volume of the piece of sodium. Explain the reason for the warning and offer an effective solution to the students' problems.
Use displacement in kerosene. Sodium wont react with the kerosene. Why not gasoline? Who in the their right mind play with gasoline in a chem lab?
