A merchant in Kathmandu sells you a solid gold 1-kg statue for a very reasonable price. When you get home, you wonder whether you got taken, so you lower the statue into a container of water and measure the volume of displaced water. Show that for 1 kg of pur gold, the volume of water displaced is 51.8cm3 (Hint: Archimedes' Principal)

  • physical science -

    mass = volume x density.
    mass = 1000 g
    density of gold is 19.3 g/cc
    Solve for volume.
