# You have a 250.0-mL graduated cylinder containing some water. You drop three marbles with a total mass of 95.2 g into the water. What is the average density of a marble?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The average density of marble has to be given.

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 average density of marble is calculated as,

â€‚Â CalculateÂ theÂ volumeÂ ofÂ marble:_VolumeÂ ofÂ marbleÂ Â =Â finalÂ volumeÂ ofÂ waterÂ -Â initialÂ volumeÂ ofÂ waterÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â =Â 99Â mlÂ -Â 61mlÂ =Â 38Â mlCalculateÂ theÂ densityÂ ofÂ marble:_Given:Â â€‰massÂ =â€‰95
