Which occupies a larger volume, 600 g of water (with a density of 0.995 g/cm3) or 600 g of lead (with a density of 11.35 g/cm3)?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The one that occupies larger volume has to be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Density: Is a characteristic property of a substance. The density of a substance is the relationship between the mass of the substance and how much space it takes up (volume).

Density = MassVolume

Explanation

The volume of lead and water is calculated as,

Calculate the volume:Given: Density (water) = 0.995 g/cm3and mass = 600g ;  Density (lead) = 11.35 g/cm3 and mass = 600gKnown: density = MassVolumeWhereas,Volume of water = MassDensity = 600 g0
