Recall density = mass/volume
dark blue block → larger mass (heavier) in a smaller volume → higher density
For each box below, examine the blocks attached to the balances.
Based on their positions and sizes, determine which block is more dense (the dark block or the lighter-colored block), or if the relative densities cannot be determined. (Think carefully about the information being shown.)
