An unknown sphere that weights 5g is carefully placed in a graduated cylinder with 20 mL of water. The new measurement of the graduated cylinder is 48mL. What is the density of the sphere?
a) 5.6 g/mL b) 0.10 g/mL c) 0.18 g/mL d) 0.25 g/mL e) 4 g/mL


Expert Answer

Step 1

On the addition of sphere, the volume of water increases. The volume of water increases from 20 mL to 48 mL. Thus, the difference bet...
