Density Problem Set

Due 9/28/18

Only one set of answers per team

Question 1

2) A 50.0-g silver object and a 50.0-g gold object are both added to 75.5 mL of

water contained in a graduated cylinder. What is the new water level, in milliliters, in the

cylinder? You will need to find the densities of the objects.

3) A mouthwash is 21.6% ethanol by mass. If each bottle contains 0.358 pt of

mouthwash with a density of 0.876 g/mL, how many kilograms of ethanol are in 180

bottles of the mouthwash?

4) A new penny has a mass of 2.49 g and a volume of 0.349 cm3. Is the penny pure

copper?

Question 5

6) A hybrid SUV consumes fuel at a rate of 12.8 km/L. How many miles can the car

travel on 22.5 gal of gasoline?

7) You measure the masses and volumes of two cylinders. The mass of cylinder 1 is

1.35 times the mass of cylinder 2. The volume of cylinder 1 is 0.792 times the volume of

cylinder 2. If the density of cylinder 1 is 3.85 g/cm3 , what is the density of cylinder 2?
