A bead weighs 15 g, you place it in a graduated cylinder that has 20mL of water in it. After placing the bead in the cylinder, the water level is now at 30mL. What is its density? Chemistry Measurement Density 1 Answer GiĆ³ Jan 28, 2016 Answer: I found: #rho=1.5g/(cm^3)# Explanation: Density #rho# is equal to #""mass"/"volume"# so in our case the mass is #15g# while the volume should be: #30-20=10ml=10cm^3# The density of the material of the bead should then be: #rho=15/10=1.5g/(cm^3)# Related questions How can density be used to identify substances?
