Suppose you have two 100-{\rm mL} graduated cylinders. In each cylinder there is 58.5mL 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? Assume that cubes are totally emerged in the water.

  1. volume of water = 58.5 mL
    volume cubes = 2.0 x 2.0 x 2.0 = 8 cc = 8 mL.
    new volume in BOTH graduated cylinders is
    58.5 + 8 = ?
    No, I didn't err. Both Pb and Al have the same volume so the water levels will be the same when both are submerged.
