This question is also confusing me…

The density of diamond is 3.51 g/cm^3 and the density of platinum is 21.43g/cm^3. If equal masses of diamond and platinum are transferred to equal volumes of water in separate graduated cylinders, which graduated cylinder would have the greatest volume change? Explain or show with a sample calculation.

Thank you so much…last question promise!

    The problem says equal masses so make up a number, say 10 grams.
    Then mass = volume x density or
    v = mass/density. Using the 10 g and density of each, calculate volume of each.
    That will be the volume occupied by the 10 g sample of each. The largest volume will displace the most water from a graduated cylinder.
