Suppose you have two 100-mL graduated cylinders. In each cylinder there is 40.0mL of water. You also have two cubes: one is lead, and the other is aluminum. Each cube measures 2.0cm on each side. After you carefully lower each cube into the water of its own cylinder, what will the new water level be in each of the cylinders?

  1. the volume of each cube is 8cm^3

    new water level: 48.0ml

  2. but doesn't the lead and aluminum have anything to do with the calculation

  3. Hey, volume is volume. The volume is the same and each will displace a volume of water equal to its own volume, no matter what it's identity.
