Problem Details

Based on the experiments shown in the first two sketches, and , which of the following are valid conclusions?


Check all that apply.

a. The block will not dissolve in ethanol.

b. The liquid level in the beaker is greater now than before the block was added.

c. The density of the block is greater than 0.7896 g/cm3.

d. The mass of the block is 50.0 g.

e. The exact density of the block can be calculated.


The accompanying sketches suggest four observations made on a small block of plastic material.

When analyzing Figure 4, it is helpful to keep in mind that the apparent mass of an object in fluid is equal to its mass in air, minus the mass of the fluid displaced 

mapparent = mair − mdisplaced fluid
