On dropping a plastic bead of density 0 .24 g/cm 3 into the column of liquids what will happen has to be described. Concept Introduction: Mass per unit volume of any object is known as its density. Density can be calculated if mass and volume of the object is known. The SI unit of density is kg/m 3 . d = m V Where, d is the density m is the mass V is the volume. If the solid has less density than that of a liquid, then the solid will float on the surface of liquid.

Solutions

Chapter 1, Problem 1.32QP

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

On dropping a plastic bead of density 0.24g/cm3 into the column of liquids what will happen has to be described.

Concept Introduction:

Mass per unit volume of any object is known as its density.  Density can be calculated if mass and volume of the object is known.  The SI unit of density is kg/m3 .

d = mV

Where,

d is the density

m is the mass

V is the volume.

If the solid has less density than that of a liquid, then the solid will float on the surface of liquid.

(b)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

What will happen if plastic bead of volume 0.043mL and mass of 3.92×10-2g is dropped into the column containing liquids has to be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Mass per unit volume of any object is known as its density.  Density can be calculated if mass and volume of the object is known.  The SI unit of density is kg/m3 .

d = mV

Where,

d is the density

m is the mass

V is the volume.

If the solid has less density than that of a liquid, then the solid will float on the surface of liquid.

(c)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

If another bead when dropped into the column makes way to the bottom means what can be concluded from it has to be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Mass per unit volume of any object is known as its density.  Density can be calculated if mass and volume of the object is known.  The SI unit of density is kg/m3 .

d = mV

Where,

d is the density

m is the mass

V is the volume.

If the solid has less density than that of a liquid, then the solid will float on the surface of liquid.
