A sample of unknown metal is placed in a graduated cylinder containing water. The mass of the sample is 37.5 g, and the water levels before and after adding the sample to the cylinder are as shown in the figure. Which metal in the following list is most likely the sample? (d is the density of the metal.) Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The unknown compound has to be identified.

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

Reason for true statements

The density of the compound is calculated as,

Calculate the volume of unknown compound:_Volume of marble  = final volume of water - initial volume of water                                = 21 ml - 7ml = 14 mlCalculate the density of unknown compound:_Given: mass =37
