These are my last 2 questions i need help on....

1. to determine the density of an irregularly shaped object, a student immersed the object in 21.2 ml of water in a graduated cylinder, causing the level of the water to rise to 27.8 ml. If the object had a mass of 22.4 g, what was the density of the object?
(remember 1 ml = 1 cm cubed)

2. Carbon fibre bicycles have essentially replaced the aluminum and aluminum alloy bikes in the Tour de France. Carbon fibre has a density of 6.24g/cm cubed. Aluminum has a density of 2.70g/cm cubed. what property of carbon fibre is the most likely reason for the switch? explain your reasoning.

someone help me.... thank you

  1. Volume = (27.8 -21.2) cm^3
    mass = 22.4 g
    density = 22.4/(27.8-21.2) g/cm^3
