The volume of an irregularly shaped solid can be determined from the volume of water it displaces. A graduated cylinder contains 19.9mL of water. When a small piece of galena is added, it sinks and the volume increases to 24.5mL. What is the volume of the piece of galena in cm^3 and in L? Thank you!

  1. Two objects can't occupy the same volume at the same time. The galena crystal must have occupied 24.5 mL - 19.9 mL = ?? mL.1 cc = 1 mL and 1000 cc = 1L.
