Lesson: Density of Solids Mathematics • 11th Grade
In this lesson, we will learn how to find the density of a solid and solve word problems involving density.
A submarine has a volume of 1,005 cubic feet. Its density must be less than or equal to 62.43 pounds per cubic foot to float on the surface of the water. What is the greatest possible mass that the submarine could have before sinking?
A large balloon has a volume of 1.767 cubic feet. It is filled with helium, which has a density of 0.010238 pounds per cubic foot. What is the mass, in pounds and correct to three decimal places, of the helium in the balloon?
A right conical piece of metal has base radius 1.8 cm and height 2.7 cm and mass 63 g. Determine the density of the metal to the nearest hundredth.
