# I asked this under chemistry but directed me to physics...thanks.Suppose you have two 100-mL graduated cylinders. In each cylinder there is 40.0 mL of water. You also have two cubes: one is lead (density = 11.3 g/mL), and the other is aluminum (density = 2.70 g/mL). Each cube measures 1.9 cm 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? I know that I will need to add the 40.0 mL water with the lead cube and then 40.0 mL water with the aluminum cube, but I can't figure out how to find the mass of the cubes since they are in cm.Thanks!

I asked this under chemistry but directed me to physics...thanks.

Suppose you have two 100-mL graduated cylinders. In each cylinder there is 40.0 mL of water. You also have two cubes: one is lead (density = 11.3 g/mL), and the other is aluminum (density = 2.70 g/mL). Each cube measures 1.9 cm 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?

I know that I will need to add the 40.0 mL water with the lead cube and then 40.0 mL water with the aluminum cube, but I can't figure out how to find the mass of the cubes since they are in cm.

Thanks!
