What happens to the density of a material if you have a larger piece of it?

A)The density will be smaller because the mass remains the same as the volume increases.

B)The density will remain the same because mass and volume will both increase in the same way.

C)The density will remain the same because mass and volume will remain the same.

D)The density will be greater because the mass increases but the volume remains the same.

2. I would not choose D. The mass does increase BUT the volume increases also. The density remains the same. Density is an intrinsic property. The correct answer is B.
